Mark Kozelek "Lost Verses Live" (2009)

Sometimes an album cover tells you everything you need to know about the album.  The hazy dreamlike photo here matches the quiet dreamy quality of the music.  Accompanied just by longtime sideman Scott Carney, Kozelek plays acoustic versions of songs going back to his days in Red House Painters.  This ambient melancholy isn't for everyone or every setting, but when it works, it really works.
