Label:
4AD

Part of 4AD’s 2015 reissue campaign of Red House Painters’ catalog, Red House Painters (also known as Rollercoaster to distinguish it from the second eponymous album, known as Bridge) is the second Red House Painters album, released in spring 1993 by 4AD. 

The lengthy album gives voice to Mark Kozelek’s haunted lyrics of pain, desolation and loss, while musically running the gamut from the folk-pop of ‘Grace Cathedral Park’ and ‘Mistress’ to the stark, affecting ‘New Jersey’ and onto the lengthy, droning soundscapes of ‘Funhouse’ and ‘Mother’.
