Sun Kil Moon

Last night I saw Sun Kil Moon at the Town Hall. He gave a really beautiful and mesmerizing performance. I have two albums of his which I love, and it was great seeing him live, and seeing the feel he gives to his songs. He has an odd, introverted way of moving on the stage, as if he's kind of in his own world. His band was wonderful and they did extended versions of his songs in such a lovely and exciting way. At times it seemed like orchestral folk, at others like wild rock. There is so much intimacy in his lyrics, a mix of sad profundity and quotidian observations and feelings. He is a very unique and special artist.
