Mark Kozelek's fifth release in 2017 was created with keyboardist Ben Boye (who appeared on both of the year's Sun Kil Moon albums in addition to numerous recordings by Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Ryley Walker, among others) and Dirty Three drummer Jim White. Almost immediately, Boye and White seem like a much better, more fitting match for Kozelek than some of the musicians he'd previously collaborated with during the preceding few years. The albums with Jesu clearly sound like Kozelek singing/speaking on top of Justin Broadrick's electronic backing tracks, and Steve Shelley's drums on Common as Light and Love were highly repetitive loops. Here, the three musicians clearly seem like they're all in the same room, feeding off of each other's creative energies.
