Sun Kil Moon has a new record coming out November 1st. It is an album made up entirely of Modest Mouse covers. Now Mark Kozelek has already released and album of Bon Scott-era AC/DC covers, but on this new album, Tiny Cities, he reinterprets Issac Brock’s songs and makes them his own. I’ve only heard a few tracks, but I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the full album.
“Lauded by critics and adored by fans, Richard Buckner is one of the most heartfelt and honest songwriters you will ever hear and his first release on Merge Records (and sixth full-length) is a departure of sorts for this modern troubadour. Still full of all the heartbreak of his previous work, Dents and Shells adds some powerful elements with a few full band tracks framing Buckner’s muscular lyrics and powerful voice. The new album was recorded in Tucson (Wavelab Studios) and Austin (Tophat Studios), with a little bit of home and “tent” recordings thrown in to round things out. Following in the storytelling and folk traditions of people as diverse as Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and Richard Thompson Buckner’s approach on Dents and Shells will have fans of recent artists such as Iron & Wine, Cass McCombs, Sufjan Stevens and Damien Jurado listening closely.”
