For nearly three decades Darius Kosk has built an impressive body of work as a member of the Swingin' Utters and Filthy Thieving Bastards, as well as launching a solo career a couple years back with Sisu. And now, he's adding to that canon with What Was Once Is By And Gone, his second solo record on Fat Wreck Chords and most expansive work to date. Where Sisu dripped with Koski's Americana influences, What Was Once Is By And Gone is an even more eclectic batch. You can see the mark of such artists as The Kinks, Leonard Cohen, and even the dark, unsettling works of Nick Cave present this time around. Songs like "Old Bones" and "Stay With Me" are unlike anything he's done before, as Koski tells evocative stories that ache forward like a tumbleweed in the wind. And when Kosk returns to the Americana roots of Sisu, as he does on album opener "Black Sheep," you can see shades of Johnny Cash's acclaimed American Recordings series. Though not a concept record, Koski's work here feels cinematic, with layers of instruments building a distinct world, using instrumental pieces to shift the album's tone and tenor like a director uses a film score.
