Mark Kozelek is currently on tour promoting his slew of 2017 releases, and he has made quite an interesting choice in backing band with the Magik*Magik Orchestra. It's really impressive how well the group has adapted much of this new material into chamber arrangements. Thankfully, last month's performance in Chicago was documented and is being released in January as a freebie to go along with any orders through Mark's site. That probably means another Sun Kil Moon album isn't too far off, either. Not that we needed a hint.

Hear the rendition of With Ben Boye and Jim White cut "Astronomy" above. I'd say it's got both studio versions beat.
