He's a Whore is awesome. As is the rest of the first album.

FWIW, I think a song about how much Ottawa music festivals suck, sung to the tune of Dream Police sounds promising on paper.

As someone who lives in Ottawa I can verify that his subject matter is correct. It does strike me as incredibly lazy though, like writing a song about water being wet or the sun rising in the East...

I don't know any Jesu (aren't they metal?) but this is a really really nice song, "America's Most Wanted Mark Kozelek and John Dillinger". Kozelek still has the Universal Themes cadence that I detest quite a bit but the music is really nice instead of dissonant and he relaxes his vocals a bit.

Jesu / Sun Kil Moon

collab album out Feb 19

Of course it features like three minutes of Kozelek reading out a sycophantic fan letter.

Less than 25 people attend a Mark Kozelek show:

Comment section reveals the figure to be closer to 100. The venue is pissed about the article:

“We would like comment on the recent Stereogum & NME Magazine articles about Mark Kozelek’s recent show in ‪#‎LNK‬. The numbers reported are completely inaccurate and were not verified with the venue.
The original source – The Daily Nebraskan (a student-run newspaper of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln) is in the process of making the correction.
It’s extremely disappointing to see this inaccurate, bad journalism magnified to an international level in what seems to be an attempt to disparage the artist.
These publications are viewed as being reputable. Please make the requested correction. We would be happy to provide you with accurate information.”

...I would pay any earthly sum to sit in an audience of 25 at a Mark Kozelek show.

I would too. The description of that show sounds utterly fantastic.

The letter at the end of "Last Night I Rocked The Room Like Elvis and Had Them Laughing Like Richard Pryor" is fucking tremendous.

It was probably from the same gig I went to. I'm listening to a few tracks from this thing now and whilst it seems immediately better than Universal Themes, it still suffers from the defiant self-indulgence that ruined that album. Maybe I'm just a Benji hipster.

The good is great, the bad is grating.

Here's a picture of the lyric sheet.


I'm liking this more and more, though it definitely has weaknesses! I'm not too fond of "Fragile", and I think Kozelek's obsession with Nick Cave's dead son is a touch weird, but that's what Kozelek does - zeroes in on the minutae of everyday existence and expands it.
