Red House Painters- Silly Love Songs

Mark Kozelek wants to fill the world with silly love songs, it seems.  He’s always had the ability to make fantastic covers that are recognizable but distinctly his own.  This one is an extended track with lots of great guitar riffs and a solid groove, like a version of Down By The River that spins into a Wings tune when you least expect it.  It’s a long one, at about 11 minutes, but what’s wrong with that?  I’d like to know.
