Songs For A Blue Guitar

Songs For A Blue Guitar by Red House Painters
Released: Jan 1996
Label: Island Records
Red House Painters' fifth LP was their first on a major label, but it nevertheless holds a cherished place in the canon of '90s indies. Even though singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek was the only remaining original member, tunes that are alternately gentle ("Have You Forgotten") and driven with distorted guitars ("Make Like Paper") demonstrate that he's the band's heart and soul. Moreover, his eccentric taste for covers, which include numbers from Yes and solo McCartney, prove just how far he had strayed from the '90s alternative convention.
