Mark Kozolek will be touring through Europe for a good chunk of February, and playing a few shows in North America in March. To be exact, the Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon member has only three North American dates scheduled. Luckily for East Coasters, those are in Philadelphia, Toronto and at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on March 18th. Tickets are on sale (at noon, 12/10).
Mark Kozelek also got his dirty paws on the debut LP from Desertshore (named after Nico's LP?), a band comprised of keyboardist Chris Connolly and guitarist Phil Carney (of Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters). The instrumental album, entitled Drifting Your Majesty, was co-produced with Kozelek/the band and is out now via Caldo Verde Records. The band is currently streaming a pair of tracks: check out "Mojave Mirage" and "Gwynnedd". Both are worth a gander.
