Perils from the Sea is a collaborative studio album by American singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek and multi-instrumentalist Jimmy LaValle, released on April 30, 2013 on Caldo Verde Records. On September 11, 2011, Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek asked Jimmy LaValle, of The Album Leaf, to collaborate on a song, resulting in the album's opening track, What Happened to My Brother. The two continued to work together over the next year, culminating in a finished album, Perils from the Sea. Perils from the Sea, a surprisingly absorbing collaboration between Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon frontman Mark Kozelek and Album Leaf mastermind Jimmy LaValle, sounds exactly as one might imagine. Kozelek's richly detailed, impressionistic lyrics and laconic delivery, when paired with LaValle's bare-bones bedroom electropop, are as engaging as they are impossibly lonesome, sounding on occasion like Kid A filtered through a Pacific Northwest skylight.

The project began when Kozelek reached out to LaValle in late 2011 to collaborate on a song. The result was opener What Happened to My Brother. The two continued working together through the next year until the completion of Perils From the Sea. Perils from the Sea Q&A. Album 2013 11 Songs. Here Come More Perils from the Sea. Somehow the Wonder of Life Prevails. 11 Songs, 1 Hour 17 Minutes. Released: 30 Apr 2013. 2013 Caldo Verde Records. More By Mark Kozelek. Perils from the Sea is a collaboration that is constructed simply, and describing it is even simpler: imagine the slowcore of Red House Painters evoked with a folktronica backdrop, a moody foundation over which Mark Kozelek provides voiceovers of his lifes mundanities. Jimmy LaValle has schemed out a fresh setting for Kozeleks storytelling here tinkering beats, ominous synthlines, sullen guitar chords yet the result is frustratingly humdrum. He commits to slowcore at the expense of active engagement, as elements are rendered linearly with an inbuilt resistance to change. Perils From The Sea' is the debut collaboration by The Album Leaf's multi-instrumentalist Jimmy LaValle and Sun Kil Moon singer Mark Kozelek. The project began on Sept 11, 2011, when Kozelek, a fan and acquaintance of LaValle, asked Jimmy to co-write a song. LaValle, a long time admirer of Kozelek's work, said yes, and the track 'What Happened To My Brother' came together quickly. Pleased with the results, the two agreed to record an entire album. Kozelek and LaValle continued to work together over the following year, until 'Perils From The Sea&x read. Here Come More Perils From The Sea. Somehow The Wonder Of Life Prevails. First, I have to thank Ivo Watts-Russell who has long championed the music of Mark Kozelek from signing him at the beginning of his career at 4AD. Ivo kept telling me this album was getting heavy, daily rotation for months in his home. I put off buying a little while since I figured it would be what I would expect, which would be more than fine. Perils from the Sea may not be a seamless collaboration, but neither artist has sounded so purposeful in his reverie in years. Full Review. If youre at all familiar with Kozeleks work with Sun Kil Moon or his earlier work with Red House Painters, or familiar with Lavalles records as Album Leaf, Perils From the Sea offers exactly zero surprises.
