* EpicRocking- Sun Kill Moon keeps up with the tradition set by [[Music/RedHousePainters Kozelek's previous band]] and has several tunes that exceed the 5 minute mark. However the best example is probably the [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome 14 minute and 33 second epic]] by the name of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSPxpssV-Mg "Duk Koo Kim"]]
* GenreShift- As if the change from Red House Painters wasn't enough, the downright bleak, gritty traditional folk sound of ''April'' surprised a lot of people.
* GoMadFromTheIsolation: "Space Travel Is Boring"
* IAmTheBand- Kozelek when he decides to write out every part of the music.

Their first album ''Ghosts of the Great Highway'' was released in 2003 to great critical acclaim and record sales for any {{Slowcore}} act and for any Mark Kozelek-related project. The next album, a ModestMouse cover album, ''Tiny Cities'' was released to mostly positive reviews in 2005. It was in 2008 that the act got a great deal of critical reception when they released ''April'', a sprawling, folk influenced album. Kozelek followed it up in 2010 with ''Admiral Fall Promises'', on which he was the sole musician. Although the album was met with generally positive reviews, some fans were disappointed in the fact that Kozelek eschewed the layered arrangements that were present on his previous work.

In January of 2014, the band released their sixth album, titled ''Benji'', which continued the lyrical tread set by it's predecessor. The album has been met with some of the most positive reception in Kozelek's career.

* CreatorBreakdown- Much of the content on ''April'' was apparently inspired by the death of Kozelek's one time muse.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes- Just like RHP before them, Sun Kil Moon haven't fared much better with this trope. Want to listen to '''any''' of their albums on vinyl after their initial pressings? Hope you have 75 to 100 dollars on you.



* TroubledProduction- In comparison to Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon had a ''much'' easier time with recording and getting albums out. That is, until ''April'' was released in 2008. Kozelek became hard to deal with, being massively depressed after the death of a one-time muse of his. This caused an ego unseen in the singer-songwriter that made him even more controlling than usual over the instrumentation. As a result, the latest 2 SKM releases have all been instrumentally stripped down to avoid further complications between Kozelek and session musicians.

The next album, a ModestMouse cover album, ''Tiny Cities'' was released to mostly positive reviews in 2005. It was in 2008 that the act got immense recognition when they released ''April'' to near universal critical acclaim. Using old fashioned folk music, Mark Kozelek got much praise for adding a much needed edge to the genre. The 2010 album ''Admiral Fall Promises'' also got some moderate praise but is usually not considered one of Kozelek's best works.

The band's fourth album, ''Among The Leaves'', continues the trend of sparse instrumentation set by ''Admiral Fall Promises'', however, it also featured a more stream of consciousness lyrical approach. Many critics and fans found themselves confused as to what to think of the new album.

In Janurary of 2014, the band released their fifth album, titled ''Benji'', which has been met with many positive reviews.
