agutterfan RHP finish their illustrious career with a solid album of sad & sorrowful guitar ballads with literate lyrics. Makes you want to go back to their debut and start all over again. Favorite track: Between Days.

Robert Stuart This found me by way of Sun Kil Moon’s Carissa which was featured NPR’s Songs We Love 2014. Then a random spin on Spotify pulled Between Days and it clicked. Lucky me... Favorite track: Between Days.

𝕤𝕖𝕧𝕖𝕟𝕠𝕔𝕝𝕠𝕔𝕜𝕟𝕖𝕨𝕤 RHP were one of the most consistent bands of the 90's and this is a wonderful way to close that chapter in Mark Kozelek's career. The songs may be a bit lighter lyrically, but the underlying melancholy present in the best Painters work is still there. Favorite track: Void.

Originally recorded in ‘97 and ’98, Old Ramon is the first new Red House Painters release since 1996’s Songs for a Blue Guitar. This is a very big deal. In the interim between Old Ramon and the last RHP record, singer Mark Kozelek has somehow found the time to release two critically acclaimed solo records (on the Badman label), produce a John Denver tribute album, tour solo in the United States, UK, Spain, Sweden and South Korea, score the independent film Last Ball, and appear in Cameron Crowe’s film Almost Famous.
