In the latest episode, the Dads discuss what could easily be argued as the best album of 2014 with Sun Kil Moon’s Benji. Frontman Mark Kozelek is no stranger to the indie rock scene due to his years with the Red House Painters, solo material, side projects, and cover albums (we’re looking at you Tiny Cities). Yet, despite the success of his previous works, Benji was an important milestone which relaunched Mark’s career in the public eye. The album serves as a continuation of his first foray into stream-of-conscious lyrics that were heavily featured on his previous album--Among the Leaves. On this album in particular, Mark returns to his Ohio roots and explores his fragile family tree. It’s an album filled with death and despair, as Mark reflects upon the recent passing of his second cousin, Clarissa, and the history of his hometown.
