Mark Kozelek, the Sun Kil Moon leader whose recent records have trended toward quasi-spoken-word memoirs, has a new EP that he’s recorded under his own name. Beginning 4/1, Kozelek will send a CD copy of his new Night Talks EP to anyone who makes an order from his Caldo Verde label, and he’s also selling the EP as a standalone. The five-song EP includes two covers, of Leonard Cohen’s “Famous Blue Raincoast” (which Kozelek recently covered onstage) and of the veteran folk singer-songwriter Kath Bloom’s “Pretty Little Flowers.” The latter is a duet with Bloom herself. And there’s also an acoustic version of “I Love Portugal,” from the recent Sun Kil Moon album Common As Light And Love Are Red Valleys Of Blood. Below, you can use YouTube or Spotify to stream the EP.
The Night Talks EP is out now on Caldo Verde.
