Shoutout to @Maureen for never shutting the fuck up about this band

Going into this, I knew NOTHING about Sun Kil Moon. Still don't know much, really. All I know is that I initially confused them with Sunn O))) and I assumed they were similar to the latter band's line of work (lol). I went into this completely blind, and WOW, was I impressed. I'm usually not big on pure folk music, but I can't deny that this whole thing is absolutely gorgeous! Mark Kozelek's intricate storytelling and solemn yet commanding voice absolutely make this album, and the instrumentals are very stripped back- mostly just Kozelek's acoustic guitar- but that's all Benji needs. It just works so well. Heartbreakingly personal and detailed, masterfully composed, and so well performed it almost haunts me... goddamn, I loved this.
