Jesu + Sun Kil Moon release anti-Trump song “The Greatest Conversation Ever In The History Of The Universe”
This past Friday, Peter Buck and Corin Tucker's new band Filthy Friends released "Despiereta" for the ongoing series of anti-Donald Trump songs, 30 Days 30 Songs. Today, we get one from Jesu + Sun Kil Moon called “The Greatest Conversation Ever In The History Of The Universe”. As you'd expect from a present-day Mark Kozelek song (that's almost ten minutes long), it doesn't stick to just one theme and it's also filled with great one-liners. Here's one: "If you don't like this song, or what I have to say, then fuck off and listen to 'Bye Bye Miss American Pie.'" Listen above.
Jesu + Sun Kil Moon are also planning to release their new album, 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth, on June 1 2017. Sun Kil Moon will also release a new solo album, Common as Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood, on February 27 2017.
Jesu also made Pitchfork's new 50 Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time list with his 2004 s/t LP coming in at #20.
