I have no idea what to say about this track.

It's starts off like some kind of tribute to 1950's jingle r something, then immediately falls into this deep, sad something. It feels like tavelling down some desolate highway in the middle of a snowless winter. really wish I had discovered it sooner, I'm usually so up on Gorillaz.

There's this website rainymood.com, I load it up every now and then just to listen to the sound of rain.

Ever since I was a child I've loved the sound of rain and of thunderstorms in particular, this website delivers a good quality looped recording of both. It also recommendations songs to listen to while the rain plays. On one day it was Bonobo's Black Sands, a musician I know pretty well but I hadn't listen to his new album yet.

The track reminds me of the music of Yann Tiersen and the Amélie soundtrack in particular. It's just plain lovely, I have no other words to describe it. It begin slowly, almost peekingly, then builds up one instrument at a time, building the feeling of an almost crowded small stage, and then ends as it had begun, with a single instrument. It gives me the feeling of a wet and empty sidewalk cafe, lost somewhere in rural France, just being revealed in the morning sun to the empty streets.

The rest of the album however is kinda hit and miss but Bonobo is that way to begin with.
