Holy mother of all that is holy and Jesus and the saints and Mary and Jesus, I have some big news: Sun Kil Moon, i.e. Mark Kozelek's post-Red House Painters project and creator of my all-time favorite album Ghosts of the Great Highway, just announced the release of a new album. Admiral Fell Promises will be released on July 13. Here's what their site says:
The new album by Sun Kil Moon, entitled Admiral Fell Promises, will be released on July 13 on Caldo Verde Records. This 60 minute, 10 song [of course it is] album of original material will be released on CD, digitally and vinyl. The vinyl version includes liner notes and 2 bonus tracks recorded live in St. Malo, France.This is some full-boned excitement, folks. All of a sudden, Indie Music MAYhem seems like a mere stepping stone on the path to July, when the real heavy-hitter sees the light of day.
All direct purchases direct through Caldo Verde website will receive a free, limited 4 song Sun Kil Moon EP entitled I'll Be There. The EP includes covers of Stereolab, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, and The Jackson 5.
