If the tragic passing of former drummer Tim Mooney earlier this week is any indication, life has been tough on Mark Kozelek (a.k.a. Sun Kil Moon) recently. A new video for “Black Kite,” a song from Kozelek’s sad/funny latest album, Among the Leaves, surfaced yesterday, and it’s fittingly heartbreaking.
The six-minute video is basically a sequence of greyscale footage of Wuthering Heights-ish natural landscapes with some special effects placed on top. It’s a soothing—and, again, emotionally heavy—experience.
