    Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek is no stranger to cover tunes, having taken on an entire solo album's worth of AC/DC songs (2001's WHAT'S NEXT TO THE MOON) in addition to various other disparate artists (Yes, Ace Frehley, and the Cars to name a few), while performing under the Red House Painters banner. On TINY CITIES, an unlikely follow-up to 2003's excellent GHOSTS OF THE GREAT HIGHWAY, Kozelek presents eleven spare renditions of Modest Mouse tracks, replacing that indie-rock group's edgy, spazz-pop sound with a delicate, pensive, finger-picked aesthetic. The result is a fascinating record that showcases the quirky narratives of Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock while highlighting Kozelek's plaintive vocals, thoughtful arrangements, and formidable interpretive skills.

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (p.72) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Space Travel Is Boring' teased out into a subtly transformative mini epic. He makes equally beautiful work of 'Tiny Cities Made Of Ashes."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Here, the San Franciscan mope doyen's latest group transforms the corrugated emo-rock of Portland's Modest Mouse into diaphanous baroque folk vignettes."
