Stream Sun Kil Moon Common As Light And Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood

Last year, Sun Kil Moon mastermind Mark Kozelek released two albums: One collection of covers, and one full-length collaboration with Jesu. And now he’s already got two more albums’ worth of material ready for us to hear. Kozelek recorded the new Sun Kil Moon double album Common As Light And Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood with former Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. The album is written in the diaristic, conversational style that he’s been using lately, and according to Kozelek’s website, it addresses “events from January to August of 2016 and how Mark processed it all while traveling.” We’ve already posted the early songs “God Bless Ohio” and “I Love Portugal.” And right now, you can stream the entire album at Kozelek’s website. Check out the tracklist below.
