Sun Kil Moon

Indie folk rock from San Francisco

Initially as a continuation of the band Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon is an indie folk rock act from San Francisco, California.

When the Red House Painters dissolved and lead singer Mark Kozelek released a handful of solo recordings under the name Sun Kil Moon in 2002. With the help of Jetset Records, the album “Ghosts of The Great Highway” was released in November 2003. The album, which had several songs about deceased boxers, did well with the critics reaching an overall rating of 84 out of 100 on In 2005 Kozelek founded his own label, Caldo Verde Records, and under the new label, Sun Kil Moon released “Tiny Cities” in November of the same year. The eleven-track album contains reinterpreted versions of songs originally by Modest Mouse.

In 2008 Sun Kil Moon released their third studio album entitled “April” featuring guest vocals from both Wil Oldham and Ben Gibbard. The album also included a second CD that had alternate recordings of their songs. Just like their previous albums, “April” was met with critical acclaim, gaining four-star reviews from various media outlets such as Billboard, The Boston Globe and Mojo. The follow up album, “Admiral Fell Promises” was entirely recorded by Kozelek by himself. It features his instrumentals on the nylon stringed guitar and vocals, and in 2013 Kozelek released three solo albums under his name and not Sun Kil Moon.
