Four years since Red House Painters' Songs For A Blue Guitar was released, with its near-legendary guitar solo on 'More Like Paper' (allegedly the reason behind the Painters' parting of ways with their label, 4AD). Since then, legal difficulties have prevented the release of its follow-up, 'Old Ramon'.

Fans, therefore, must content themselves with this haunting, acoustic solo record from singer Kozelek in the interim. It's as solemn, slow-paced and simmering as one would expect from the man who invented 'slowcore', but nowhere near as meandering as his main group could sometimes be. Songs like 'Around And Around' and the poignant elegy 'Rose Marie' have a Denver-esque quality to them, while Kozelek's cover of AC/DC's youth anthem 'Rock'N'Roll Singer' is almost unrecognisable. It's amazing what a little minimalism will do.
