Tiny Cities is the second studio album album by American indie folk act Sun Kil Moon, released November 1, 2005 on Caldo Verde Records. The album features the same lineup as the band's debut, Ghosts of the Great Highway (2003). This album was chosen as one of Amazon.com's Top 100 Editor's Picks of 2005 (see 2005 in music).

The full-length album is composed of covers of songs by Modest Mouse, released on Kozelek's own label, Caldo Verde Records. Much like his AC/DC tribute What's Next to the Moon, Kozelek has re-interpreted the often complicated, rhythmically complex songs of Modest Mouse into delicate, acoustic guitar led ballads.

In a February 2014 interview with Seattle's The Stranger, Kozelek commented that he's "never heard from Modest Mouse" as to what they think of the record.[5]
