Ocean Beach

A

Red House Painters Ocean Beach (4AD) Lead Painter Mark Kozelek remains a king of American gothic gloom and hypnotic melancholia, but this time, he lets in more sunlight, Simon and Garfunkel influence, and acoustic guitar woodsiness. A beautiful structural mess, the album includes an instrumental opening tune, the elegantly sad ”Cabezon,” and extended songs that sprawl all over the darkened living room of your brain. The term painterly springs easily to mind. A -Josef Woodard
