Rain, Rain Go Away

Fair enough I don't like summer too much in terms of weather, but you know what else I don't like? When the old stereotype of rainy England comes round to bite me in the arse. Still makes for good music accompaniment I guess. Here we go!

Gustave Caillebotte - Paris Street: Rainy Day (1877)

Knxwledge seems to have taken off a bit in popularity since I last covered him, I still have love for his off kilter beats that are reminiscent of Los Angeles era Flying Lotus, I just wish he'd make more proper full length tunes. But then again they'd probably not be as sweet on repeat listens then.

And of course I still have love for the Massive Attack boys, actually had this one come on when me and some friends ducked into our faveourite bar to avoid the weather and I gotta say they pretty much nailed the atmosphere on this one, that piano never sets a key wrong.

Brief visit to Norway once again for some synth noodling courtesy of Svein and Torbjørn. Fell in love with this one almost instantly, then again around the two minute mark, a gorgeous track through and through, the outro is pretty special too.
