Mark Kozelek has released six studio albums as frontman for Red House Painters along with three solo records; however, it is with Mark's new band Sun Kil Moon that he has received some of his greatest commercial and critical success. Two years ago, Mark saw Modest Mouse and sensed something original and explosive. The unorthodox songwriting of singer Isaac Brock intrigued him with its fractured, intuitive lyric style and cathartic, rapid-fire vocal delivery. Sun Kil Moon added songs like "Dramamine" to their set list and began work on what would become Tiny Cities, a full-length album of Modest Mouse covers released on Mark's label Caldo Verde. As with his past covers of AC/DC, KISS, Simon and Garfunkel and John Denver, Mark's aim was to bring attention to the words and sentiments - to reinterpret freely but to respect the spirit. On Tiny Cities, Mark slows down Isaac Brock's words to let them breathe without sacrificing their idiosyncratic power. The results bear the singular, hypnotic style that could only come from Mark Kozelek.
