MP3: New Sun Kil Moon - "Sunshine in Chicago"

Publish date:

The best band ever to be named after a Korean lightweight boxer, Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon are planning for a big 2012 after a silent 2011. In preparation for his pseudo-solo project’s upcoming LP Among the Leaves, Kozelek’s just dropped single number one “Sunshine in Chicago.” It’s a soft, bittersweet, and deeply personal ballad on little more than guitar and xylophone about the trials and tribulations of a wanderer’s experience of Midwestern life. Kozelek’s lyrics, at points funny and at points poignant, will be stuck in your head forever. Among the Leaves is out May 29th on Kozelek’s own label Caldo Verde.
