New Mark Kozelek: Mark Kozelek & Desertshore with Mariette

Mark Kozelek is a bit of an unknown quantity for me. A friend brought me to a Mark Kozelek solo show last year and frankly I was a bit scared. His reputation preceded him and I didn't know any of the music - except for his take on Husker Du's "Celebrated Summer". Turns out we were a well behaved audience and he put on a good show.

He's got a new project called Mark Kozelek & Desertshore with Red House Painters guitarist Phil Carney and pianist Chris Connolly. They're previewing this easy breezy track "Mariette". Lean back and soak it in.

The album will be out August 20.
