Red House Painters was the name of an alternative rock group formed in 1989 in San Francisco by singer/songwriter Mark Kozelek, who is
currently active in the band Sun Kil Moon, with part of the original RHP line-up.
The band is described, along with American Music Club, as one of the linchpins of the slowcore movement in alternative rock. Kozelek used this
group primarily as a vehicle for his very personal and emotional songs of despair, pain and suffering.
