Pitchfork opens its review by saying: 'If you're someone who's been put off by his feuds and outbursts, put aside those reservations—these records deserve it' I must admit, I've found Kozolek's whole schtick recently very tiresome; the moaning about punters at his gigs, his feuds with other bands. Jeez, man grow old with a little dignity. Really like his Sun Kil Moon stuff (especially April) but there's something about these first albums...

Just read it myself. And about time too! No mention of them in their Top 100 Albums of the 90s; a grave oversight methinks. 'Red House Painters I (Rollercoater)' is a classic.

I wasn't sure if I was a RHP fan but actually this is gorgeous isn't it?

@simonp @Bukowski I only know one song by the Red House Painters. "Bubble" from the "Bridge" album (1993) Lo-Fi at its' best. It really is about time I checked out some more by them. This is lovely. The type of thing @melissapulo grooves to....

@debutch @thesunneversets this truly is a lovely song - and they've had plenty of moments like this over the years - though they're perhaps best known for their extended, mesmerising Jams and unusual covers: Simon & Garfunkel; Wings; The Cars and Long Distance Runaraound by Yes!

@debutch The 'Bridge' album is poor by Red House Painters' standards; 'Down Colorful Hill', 'Red House Painters I (Rollercoaster)' and 'Ocean Beach' are the 'choice cuts'.

Reminds me a little of Nick Drake, mood wise. Lovely.
