Sun Kil Moon - April download album
April is the third studio album by American folk rock band Sun Kil Moon, released in the US on April 1, 2008 through Caldo Verde Records, and on April 18, 2008 in Japan via P-Vine Records. The album was recorded at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco and Well Recording in Seattle during a seven-month stretch from spring to late summer in 2007. The album was produced and written by Mark Kozelek. Will Oldham, Ben Gibbard and Eric Pollard lend their backing vocals throughout the album.
Sun Kil Moon’s third LP, April, was released on April 1, 2008. Mark Kozelek has said that much of the album deals with the loss he felt when his once girlfriend and very dear friend, Katy, passed away in 2003. In an interview, Kozelek stated That’s really the main theme in the album for me, just getting to a place where I’m more at peace with it than I was years ago. When someone important to you, someone that’s played a big role in your life, when they’re gon. hen you write about them or pay tribute to them, you want to do it in a way that’s thoughtful.

There are forces at work in Kozelek's own songs that follow like a ghost train from one destination to the next. April is no different. Memory is the fossil fuel that drives his creativity unhurriedly along a rather labyrinthine maze to the same place: wherever he is, he wishes he were somewhere else. But it's also the acceptance of that fact that makes these songs what they are.
April sticks with the acoustic theme, albeit with a couple of warm, clean electric guitar tones, but none of the Kevin Shields meets Crazy Horse tones that Ghosts of the Great Highway's "Salvador Sanchez" gave us (though "Tonight the Sky" does kick things up a notch). And even if April really does nothing new for Kozelek, it does throw us a few bells and whistles in the form of guest vocalists Will Oldham (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie, The Postal Service) and Eric Pollard.
