TUESDAY BLUES! Sun Kil Moon - Carry Me Ohio

Sun Kil Moon - Carry Me Ohio (2003)

A dip of Americana here - Sun Kil Moon are former Red House Painters singer Mark Kozeleks band (named after Korean Boxer Sung-kil moon) which I first heard back in 2003.  I know its not for everyone, but I love his eerie ghost-like voice, singing overs gorgeous guitar melodies with a sprinkle of melancholy that makes me want to listen over-and-over again it features on the album Ghosts of the Great Highway.

A few years ago I took my lovely wife to Dublin to see him live (It was the nearest venue - honest!) and I thought he was brilliant but I admit my plan slightly backfired as a combination of the local Guinness, exhaustion and his quiet singing style was a musical tranquilizer and almost put us both to sleep

"...look at this guitar, you are getting very, very sleepy..."

..I've got the Tuesday Blues, because Saturday is so far away! (Click here for more)

I've never heard anything by Sun Kil Moon before (where have I been?). I have to say this is fab and will make me seek out more. Thanks for the introduction.

It's most definitely a gorgeous piece of melancholic Americana, I love the voice and melody.

SB, Sfw is away for awhile but I'm sure he'll be delighted to have introduced you to some of his musical misery!

I just woke up and this was perfect to listen to while deciding whether to get out of bed! Decision made!
