Mark Kozelek & Jimmy LaValle - Baby in Death Can I Rest Next to Your Grave
from Perils from the Sea
Mark Kozelek’s articulations of solitude, peripateticy, death, memory, thoughts on friends and family, etc. are as poignant and moving as they’ve ever been, helped in no small part by the various moods of Jimmy LaValle’s atmospherics.
Perils from the Sea is an incredible addition to Mark’s collection of stories, twenty years old and counting, recently constituted by an extended travelogue. This song in particular is evocative of red eye flights, lonesome strolls through antiseptic airports, hotel rooms unremembered. Unbelievably powerful. I’m in love with this collaboration.
