Red House Painters - Red House Painters (Bridge)
180 Gram Vinyl with Download. Despite Red House Painters already having released a double album earlier in the year, Mark Kozelek's band capped off a remarkable year in 1993 with this second self-titled release. The whole album is a hugely introspective affair, even by the standards already set by the band. 'Evil' tells a story of a childhood misfit; this is followed by two defiantly inwardly-facing narratives in 'Bubble' and 'I Am a Rock'. Kozelek shows his gift for wringing new emotion and meaning from a cover version in the latter Paul Simon track, which sits very comfortably alongside his own song.
