[UNCOVERED FOLK] Cover bands suck. That’s the unfortunate mantra of the indie music world. Bands can occasionally hide others’ songs within the hidden tracks on albums, or bring out a classic cover for a live encore. The fact that Mark Kozelek, of Sun Kil Moon and Red House Painters, has covered songs on nearly every solo and band record, and done it so uncompromisingly, should be a hint he’s got something that doesn’t suck. His cooing, gentle wail and acoustic stylizing make Modest Mouse and AC/DC songs completely his own. In short, he’s hearkening back to the cover-happy roots of folk, with more than enough solo material to endear himself to the indie community. Though prone to pigeonholing—his style and voice are renowned for having changed very little in two decades—his live performances have the ability to carry audiences away down a dusty road, to see the sepia-washed ephemera from his album covers.
