Published Jun 01, 2015Well, it turns out Mark Kozelek is weighing on some Universal Themes a little ahead of schedule. Though his Sun Kil Moon album, also called Universal Themes, officially goes on sale tomorrow (June 2), you can stream the entire thing right now.
If you've been paying attention, Kozelek had already previewed the record's "Garden of Lavender," "Ali/Spinks 2" and "The Possum." Now you can revel in the acoustic groove of "Little Rascals," the down-tempo slink of "Cry Me a River Williamsburg Sleeve Tattoo Blues" and more.
You can hear it all over at Kozelek's website.
Additionally, a previously hinted-at interview that rapper El-P conducted with the Sun Kil Moon figure was also unveiled today, and gives extra insight behind Universal Themes. On the topic of "Cry Me a River Williamsburg Sleeve Tattoo Blues," Kozelek notes: "This is a reality check song for those who get seriously bent out of shape about not being able to use phones at concerts or that a limited run of vinyl is out of print."
