"A princess waved goodbye as the boat carrying her charming floats away from the dock. A journey of thousand miles not knowing when he'll be back. Farther. Away. Farther. Squints her eyes, imagined that distance was just a dream-- that he was still there, kissing her, holding her, staying with her. Tall, pretty face and kind: everything she wished for, except the distance." #brugge#vlaanderen#belgium#travelbelgium#fairytale#princess
Dernier soir avant un VRAI repos! J’espère trouver de l’ @aperolspritz_be dans le sud! Je laisse ma jolie terrasse et mon chat d’amour à ma maman pour les voleurs qui me liraient! Je vous préviens, elles sont armées! Surtout le chat!
Yesterday I went to Ghent. It was the first time I went alone to an unknown place outside of my own country. It was scary at first but eventually I really enjoyed my day. I went on a boat tour, but first I visited this park. It felt like I was in Italy or Greece. So calming. ~

With Admiral Fell Promises, his fourth LP as Sun Kil Moon, Kozelek has flipped the script. Instead of downcast Crazy Horse epics like Ghosts of the Great Highway and April-- albums rich with electric tones, roomy arrangements, and landscape-painting lyrics-- this is literally a solo record: just Kozelek alone with a nylon-string guitar. Furthermore, the title track dates all the way back to 2001's White Christmas Live, released under his own name. So this stands as an anomaly within his catalog, not only for its artist credit but also for its music, which finds him wandering into new territory and entertaining new ideas.
On this site last May, Kozelek said he'd been listening to a lot of classical guitar music, specifically name-checking Kaki King and Croatian musician Ana Vidovic. They seem to be the primary inspiration for Admiral Fell Promises, which showcases a classical picking style rather than his usual strumming. Kozelek's playing is supple and nuanced, swift in its fingerings and hypnotic in its repetitions of riffs and phrases. Despite the Nordic muse of the title, opener "Ålesund" possesses a flamenco intensity, as Kozelek adds fluttering fills to the main themes, and on "Australian Winter", he creates an ominous repeating rhythm that plays up the restless tension of the lyrics.
Struggled a lot with this picture. Low light isn’t my thing but I wanted to experiment a bit. Still not 100% happy with the edit, but I thought I would share it and see what you guys think.
So what are your opinions, any tips?

Cheese Croquette & Beef Flemish Stew (super native to Belgium) 🇧🇪
I had to try the Flemish stew, it’s basically braised beef, with a bunch of spices & beer and served with frites. I wanted to find a local restaurant in Antwerp so I asked a couple & they said to follow them to the restaurant they were headed to for dinner 🙏
