Leaks and covers, together again! Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon incarnation’s got an album of Modest Mouse covers, Tiny Cities, out on the first of November. Kozelek’s previous covers effort, What’s Next to the Moon was an all-AC/DC effort which was such a complete re-imagining a KCRW executive notoriously insisted that the title track was originally by Leonard Cohen. This isn’t the most anticipated track, but it’s worth checking out if you know Modest Mouse at all. Hard to believe that it’s got anything to do with the original- except for the lyrics, which got Kozelek interested in the first place.
