Sun Kil Moon, 'Admiral Fell Promises' (Caldo Verde)

6
Admiral Fell Promises
Critical Mass
Label: Caldo Verde

by David Marchese

Mark Kozelek has long been a fruitful inhabitant of the acoustic balladeer/ craggy electric-loner persona perfected by Neil Young. The big shift on his beautifully recorded, intermittently moving fourth album under the Sun Kil Moon moniker is that only his nylon-string guitar plucking now accompanies his wounded croon. Mournful Spanish-style codas on the bittersweet "Alesund" and bitterer, sweeter "The Leaning Tree" could soften a bandito's heart; but elsewhere, cloudy melodies and moony lyrics (birds figure prominently) tip languor into listlessness.
