The body of his work thus far shows that he, as a person, feels a need to re-trace, detail and understand the things that have happened in the past. His fascination of loss, love and memory is still all there, but what makes Ocean Beach somewhat different from other RHP albums lies in its sonic textures.

Red House Painters has always been Mark Kozelek's project, but Ocean Beach represents the first record that is almost entirely a solo project. Not that that distinction has made a great change in the music - Ocean Beach is a spare, gentle, nearly painfully introspective folk-rock album that draws more from Simon & Garfunkel than Bob Dylan.
