Sun Kil Moon
Among The Leaves - CALDO VERDE
FILTER Grade: 87%

On Among The Leaves, Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek revels in the succulent melancholy of sad autumn evenings in the backseat, garlanded with the shadow words of life’s heaviness, clearly woven by a master of spiritual spelunking. Listen to the deep, goosebump-inducing desolation of “Elaine,” or the oil-painted generosity of emotional detail in “Song for Richard Collopy,” and try not to feel the grit sticking sweetly to your eyelids…or are those tears?
