Sun(ny) (Day)Kil Moon’s “Lily And Parrots” for a Sunny Day

This song goes back about 5 years or so, but I think the first sunny day after rain, rain and more rain has me digging on this song even more, from Sun Kil Moon’s album Ghosts of the Great Highway – that or the release of April earlier this month.

The band is named after Korean bantamweight boxer Sung-Kil Moon, and Ghosts of the Great Highway contains several songs concerned with true-life stories of deceased boxers, such as featherweight champion Salvador Sanchez, flyweight Pancho Villa, and also Duk Koo Kim.

Ghosts of the Great Highway was released on Caldo Verde Records.
