Music for a Rainy Day

March 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

Four days straight of rain and the occasional thunderstorm means I’m listening almost exclusively to Iron and Wine, specifically The Creek Drank the Cradle, my go-to album when the skies are grey. If you were given the analogy problem of William Fitzsimmons : Pakou as ____ : Abi, the answer would have to be Samuel Beam. They both have great beards, for one thing. As for Sufjan, we gush equally.

On this gloomy and overcast evening, I’m expanding my rain repertoire. Enjoy the soft, the sad, the soothing on my playlist here…and a few more to boot:

Mouthwings by Mountain Men (Don’t be fooled by the name – they’re three harmonizing women.)

By the Cathedral by Keren Ann

Wide by The Cloud Hymn
