Song of the Day - 4/14/06

Red House Painters was primarily the vehicle of singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek, an evocative, compelling performer of rare emotional intensity. Like Mark Eitzel of American Music Club, to whose work the Painters were invariably compared and to whom their early success owed a tremendous debt, Kozelek laid his soul bare on record, conjuring harrowingly acute tales of pain, despair, and loss; unlike Eitzel, Nick Drake, and other poets of decay, Kozelek's autobiographical songs walked their tightrope without a net -- forsaking the safety offered by metaphor and allegory, he faced his demons in the first person, creating a singularly haunting body of work unparalleled in its vulnerability and honesty.

This is another pic from David over at ILIM. Solid and totally chill. It reminds me a bit of Sun Kil Moon... why? Because he was also in that amazing band, one of the chillest ever. Kozelek's bass voice and incredible control make this a great song to fall asleep to on a summer day... like I'm about to do.

    just so this person doesn't feel like i'm denying his right to speak... but that quote was just repeated a bunch of times.... and I just wanted to make it shorter... but you got your point across... whoever you are. Unfortunately, I dont feel the same way... and this is my blog... so you can continue to leave those comments, it's your right and I am in no place to stop that. Have a great day!
