This Dream Of Life, Kath Bloom's 19th album, was recorded over the last 5 winters in Los Angeles with friends. In true method fashion Kath slept in the studio that the recording took place. The album features guests Avi Buffalo, Imaad Wasif and Mark Kozelek. Kath began playing music in a graveyard with Loren Connors in the 1980s and it took nearly 40 years for her to cultivate the passion to perform that she currently revels in. Kath's song 'Come Here' was featured in Before Sunrise (1995) and Bill Callahan's cover of 'The Breeze/ My Baby Cries' was in Paolo Sorrentino's Youth (2015). Kath's songs have been covered by Devendra Banhart, Mick Turner of Dirty Three, Mark Kozelek, and Meg Baird, among others. Kath Bloom recently played the Sound Live Festival in Tokyo (2014), the Elm City Folk Festival in Connecticut (2015), the Borderless Festival in London (2016) and The End of the Road Festival in Dorset (2016). This year, her tour dates will begin in Los Angeles on 2/12/17 at The Bootleg and on 2/16/17 at The Mint.

Nick Zubeck is a songwriter, guitarist, singer, teacher and recording artist from Toronto, and is currently living and working in Guelph, Ontario. He has recorded and released five full length albums under his own name, and has been involved with many other artists and projects over the last 15+ years. As a guitarist and sideman, Nick plays with Sun Kil Moon, and has contributed to many projects including Polmo Polpo, Barzin, Great Lake Swimmers, Old Maps, and Western Terrestrial.

Skydiving, Nick's fifth full-length record, his first solo project since 2009, is a self-assured look at ubiquitous feelings of doubt, and the tribulations and serenity that come with acceptance. Zubeck takes his post-jazz pop sensibilities to new heights on Skydiving with the impeccable production of acclaimed producer/Constellation Records artist Sandro Perri, carefully arranged orchestrations, and dips into the experimental. This album sees Zubeck building on his years of experience to create a record that carefully handles poignant topics with mature reflections.

Down at the 5-Star

Release Date: June 25, 2013
(Caldo Verde Records)

Limited Edition
Compact Disc


Down at the 5-Star might best be described as 'chamber Americana', just as music writer Jeremy Searle had once suggested in his review of the band's first album, Forever the Moon. Down at the 5-Star is a collection of eleven songs, mostly about life in
small-town America. The title track is a tribute to the American truck stop. The songs are simple observations. Flowers and rainfall. Dusty roads and girls of summer. Remembrances of Southern moonlight and the honey-mouth of a Kentucky girl. Recorded primarily by sound artist Bruce Kaphan, the album achieves a markedly improved sonic distinction from the band's first album, while remaining centered upon the same thematic stage. American icons Jackie Robinson and Hank Williams are honored and a complex and unlikely homage to Spain's most renowned guitar maker is delivered plaintively. Many of the album's songs were written in 2010, at a time when songwriter Jerry Vessel seemed capable of balancing in a place between red-wine drunkenness and poetic clarity.
Down at the 5-Star is slightly damaged folk art. Like an old quilt, simply sewn together just because.

Recorded at San Francisco's Hyde Street Studios in March of 2013, Desertshore's 3rd release, Mark Kozelek and Desertshore, features 10 new songs co-written by guitarist Phil Carney (formerly of Red House Painters), pianist Chris Connolly, and Sun Kil Moon vocalist Mark Kozelek. While Kozelek guested as producer, vocalist and bassist on Desertshore's critically acclaimed Drifting Her Majesty and Drawing Of Threes, Mark Kozelek & Desertshore finds Kozelek singing throughout the record's entirety. Lyrical themes range from a day spent in New Orleans, an encounter with Church of Satan founder Anton Lavey, and the passing of friends and relatives. With drummer Mike Stevens (Sun Kil Moon) on board, this album finds the band in full force, making their way from the Motown swing of 'Mariette', to the Crazy Horse guitar innerplay of' 'Livingstone Bramble',to the delicate, Ravel influenced album closer, 'Brothers'.

Among The Leaves

Release Date May 29 - Caldo Verde Records
(Will ship approximately 2 weeks before street date)

Compact Disc

Among The Leaves is the 5th full length album by Mark Kozelek under the Sun Kil Moon moniker. Played almost entirely on nylon string guitar, this 17-song all original album was recorded between October 2011 and January 2012 in San Francisco. Among The Leaves - words which caught Mark’s attention from a John Connolly novel - finds Mark relaxed, singing playfully about his life as a musician while retaining the melancholic spirit of his 20 year catalog. Mark’s love for San Francisco and Northern California are at the heart of this new album. “My first album (Down Colorful Hill) was released in 1992” says Kozelek, “but creatively, I feel like I’m just beginning. The new album was written and recorded impulsively, without second guessing. I didn’t have that kind of confidence in the past.” Unlike Red House Painters’ epic Rollercoaster, described by Rolling Stone as “the slowest and mopiest self revelations ever put to tape” or Sun Kil Moon’s Ghosts of the Great Highway, which Billboard Magazine called “heartbreaking,” Among The Leaves displays a more raw and humorous side of Mark’s songwriting. Aaron Prellwitz, recording engineer of Red House Painters and all 5 Sun Kil Moon albums describes the latest effort as “wonderfully direct." Kozelek curiously ties together legends Joe Frazier, Bobby Fischer and Ed Gein in ‘The Winery’, ‘‘Song for Richard Collopy’ is a touching tribute to the late San Francisco guitar repairman, and ‘Sunshine In Chicago’ – written just before taking the stage at a Chicago venue last year – is a funny, self deprecating poke at life on the road. Though Among The Leaves is mostly in the solo, nylon string style of Admiral Fell Promises, a new ensemble of players joined Mark for a portion of the record, recalling the same spirit as April and Tiny Cities, but with a fresh, new sound. The album will be available digitally, on vinyl, and as a LIMITED EDITION DOUBLE CD SET.


Vinyl version will be released through Caldo Verde/Vinyl Films. Vinyl release date will NOT be May 29th and will be announced when we have more information.

A Shut-Ins Prayer


Advance Base is the new musical project by Chicago, Illinois singer, songwriter, & producer Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone). A Shut-In's Prayer is Ashworth's first full-length release in over three years, & his first under the name Advance Base. Recorded at home & in piano practice rooms at the Chicago Public Library, A Shut-In's Prayer is an intimate collection of deliberately crafted but decidedly lo-fi torch songs, waltzes & ballads. Ashworth sings nostalgic stories about lost loves, childhood friends, estranged siblings, & hard feelings over simple drum machine rhythms & spare percussion. The arrangements that fill out these ten songs intertwine gentle electric & upright piano melodies, filling the spaces between plainly-sung harmony vocals & strummed autoharp chords, with the occasional creaking floorboard or snapping reverb spring to remind you of the cramped rooms where this album was recorded. It's a different sound than one might expect from the dude from Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, but Ashworth's keen ear for melody & idiosyncratic skill as a lyricist have only improved in recent years, pushing his memorable songwriting in all new directions. At age 35, Ashworth has a lot of music left in him, and he's just getting started again. More information at and

Here I Am

Kath Bloom's Here I Am was recorded over a period of a year at Welding Arts Studio in Bethlehem, CT. The songs reflect personal struggle, growth, breakthrough and truth-at least as we come to understand it. The recordings are raw and direct. The dialogue between Kath's performance of her heart felt songs and intuitive back up guitar of Francis T. Patnaude express the resonance of those moments-nothing more and nothing less.

Director Cameron Crowe interviews Mark Kozelek about the film. Interview posted at on August 23.

Musician Owen Ashworth interviews Mark Kozelek about the film. Interview posted at on August 23.

For 19 years, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek has toured solo and as front man of both Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon. Until now, he has never given filmmakers access into his life on the road. Filmed during portions of Mark Kozelek’s European and North American tours of 2010 and 2011, this is a rare glimpse into Mark’s backstage areas and passenger seat travels. Shot in black and white, this dynamic film captures the fast paced travel of a singer on a solo-acoustic journey, giving viewers an inspirational look at its high points, and also a stark view of its mundane realities. Footage includes an intimate version of 'Katy Song' performed at Sant'Ambrogio Church in Bologna, a mesmerizing 'Half Moon Bay' performed in Switzerland, and a flamenco-flourished 'Third and Seneca' filmed in a Copenhagen hotel room. The film’s soundtrack includes album tracks, concert recordings, hotel room performances, and a score written and performed by Mark Kozelek.

After residing in San Francisco for a number of years, Vessel returned to California's San Joaquin Valley to find a new home in a familiar place. Inspired by the rural surroundings in which he now lives, Vessel found the time and solitude to reflect and write, the result being Heirlooms of August's Forever the Moon.
