— this is really happening

a comparison, sun

The windows look better with rain on them. My car looks cleaner in the rain. The blue tarp in the neighbor’s yard looks stronger wet with rain. The rain is ruling. Sun Kil Moon is a band ahead of its time. They are the quintessential rain band. Yes, even more than The Cranberries. It’s their methods that set Sun Kil Moon apart. They deconstruct handfuls of Issac Brock-penned Modest Mouse songs, leaving only the lyrics in tact. New chords, arrangements and melodies. The result shows that behind Modest Mouse’s hard chords and on-stage antics, a more tender take on their music can accentuate that Brock is a tremendous poet of great depth and talent.

K, I promise I won’t wane on with tinier, more eloquent ways to say the rain rules. I like the rain. You get it.
