Over the years Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon and his earlier band, Red House Painters, has gained well deserved praise for his extraordinary songwriting. At the same time he has developed a parallel reputation for his unique covers of other people’s material. Many of these tracks were recorded for tribute albums that are now unavailable. Caldo Verde Records has now collected them in a cohesive, 10-song LP titled ‘The Finally LP’. It is set for release December 9, 2008.
Highlights include a country tinged version of ‘Lazy’ by Low, ‘Bedtime Lullaby’ from the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba!, and an intimate, acoustic version Stephen Sondhiem’s ‘Send In The Clowns’ recorded for the Minneapolis Bridge Disaster Benefit CD. The album also includes radio show rarities, a previously unreleased version of Husker Dü’s ‘Celebrated Summer’ and two previously unreleased original instrumentals
