Thomas Crystal and Mark Kozelek

Thomas Crystal makes ambient, emotive, at times depressing music that pulls our heart strings, laid upon a bed of jangle guitars, and odd measure and tunings we can’t quite put our fingers on.  The song we decided to feature is called “greener pastures” and though we can’t quite make out what the author is trying to say, it certainly exudes a sense of wanting and loneliness that we can all relate to.

 

It is with that in mind, that we have determined that indie bad boy Mark Kozelek is his musical doppelganger.  Both artists maintain autonomous identities but listen to this track mariette and you will hear two long lost friends meeting in the sonicscapes.
