The general all-purpose Mark Kozelek thread?


#201

I can see that happening. but then there’ll be another one along soon enough, right, ahahaha

I really like the mood so far across the tracks (on ‘Weed Whacker’ rn). really fits my thoughtful balmy late-evening walk home.

the words seem to ramble a bit more gently than I was expecting. and there’s a strong element of self-deprecation to kind of undermine the now customary self-involved waffle. it’s much more palatable.


#202

stop mentioning Spotify, Mark


#203

ahhh… now I know what vibe I was getting from this at points


#204

Any @moderators fancy renaming this to a general all-purpose Mark Kozelek thread?


#205

ask and u shall receive!

Even if I’m not a mod.


#206

The panera bread story on my love for you is undying is gold


#207

this was a good one live too


#208

Like the way he cracks up in it


#209

10 years since April came out, and its a goddamn beautiful listen.


#210

His best album…


#211

April is lovely, but it’s not Ghosts of the Great Highway


#212

I find they compliment each other, both bloody beautiful, Koz at his peak


#213

Or any of the Red House Painters…


#214

it’s no Benji

or Perils From The Sea

or the Jim White Ben Boye collab.


#215

Top 5 imo:

  1. Benji
  2. Perils From The Sea
  3. Desertshore
  4. Ghosts Of The Great Highway
  5. Songs For A Blue Guitar

#216

good shout.

I think the only thing he’s done that I don’t like much is Yellow Kitchen


#217

Just listening now. Would be lovely to hear him sing again


#218

I can’t think of anything less interesting than listening to a middle aged rich dude complaining about his life over and over on about 4 records but man, here i am again. The last track is seriously great. Rest of it is much better than the last SKM and the last one with Jesu.


#219

April is miles above Benji


#220

eh

I remember April being incredibly drawn out and kind of plodding.
