Rainywood - “River Day”
MUSIC I LOVE = Rainywood - Rainywood E.P.
This album is the first by the group that later went on to form BrightBlack Morning Light and release a couple of albums on Matador. They were originally a group of a couple folks from Alabama who made this amazing and amazingly chill album. I am from the South and this captures the laziness so well.
Originally I heard them as they opened for Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy on a hot springs tour (they based the tour on the locations of hot springs they wanted to go to). I actually used to see the piano player, Rachel, at the Farmer’s Market all the time in Berkeley. They lived in the woods somewhere near Bolinas and last I heard they were living in a teepee in New Mexico.
