Sun Kil Moon's imminent album Universal Themes has been made available for streaming, ahead of its release tomorrow (2nd June). You'll have to go over to the sunkilmoon.com to listen to it.

Meanwhile, and also over on the Sun Kil Moon site, it appears that Mark Kozelek has been inexplicably interviewed by El-P of Run the Jewels. They talk through the tracks one-by-one, launching occasionally into deeper territories with thoughtful and incisive questions like "is it possible to write well about pain without having felt it or witnessed it? is the attempt disrespectful to those who actually have?" and "what does the indian in the gas station mean to you?"
