"The hurting never ends like birthdays and old friends"

Red House Painters
"Medicine Bottle" [Live at Black Cat, Washington, DC. 11.29.96]
from the 1992 album,
Down Colorful Hill

I bought the album when I was recording in D.C. in 2000 and listened to it every night on my headphones. It was the first time I had ever heard anything of its sort. The erie spaciousness, lengthy tracks, and nonconventional quiet mix still stands out to me to this day. Here it is live.
