dslr // december eleven // sun kil moon | carry me ohio

sun kil moon is the brainchild of mark kozelek, formerly of red house painters. i guess the bands name was actually based on former south korean bantamweight boxer, sung-kil moon. "carry me ohio" is nine years old now, but it's difficult to think of the song as anything but timeless these days. with the relatively recent leak of "sunshine in chicago," (which will make an appearance here sooner than later) it only makes sense to remember n consider the groups roots. download this track via i'm waking up to, who, also, seem to be pretty classy dudez.

from their second album, tiny cities (entirely modest mouse covers), enjoy the video for "ocean breathes salty:"

dslr // march twelve // the black angels | bad vibrations

to celebrate the upcoming release of their new 7", "watch out boy" b/w "i'd rather be lonely" (april twenty-first) i thought i'd throw up some older black angels. based on this, the texas found band seems to have made a significant creative departure from their past work. "i'd rather be lonely," can't stop, won't stop.

dslr // march twelve // best coast | the only place

we don't have the oceans, beaches or sun. i've always been an apprehensive fan of bethany cosentino's best coast but be it the weather, mood or the perpetual evolution of her vocals, i can't help but like the first single "the only place" from her upcoming second full length album. download here via bestnewtracks.
