Mark Kozelek AKA Sun Kil Moon is set to release a new album just one year after the release of his phenomenal album ‘Benji’ last year. ‘Universal Themes’ is due to come out on June 2nd and this is the first track to be taken from it.
The song takes a lot more of a moody and electric route than any of the material on ‘Benji’ with it feeling a lot less stripped back. It’s interesting to hear him take this route and stay loyal to the way that he tells stories as it’s almost distracting at times to hear him over such different instrumentation. The title of the song is a reference to a boxing match and of course throughout this song you can hear plenty of pop culture references at you as you’d expect from his songwriting.
