Blood is Trouble, the latest release from songwriter Greg Weeks is filled with lots of good rainy-day folk music. I didn’t know much about him so I looked him up. Pitchfork’s review of the album was mostly praiseworthy and gave a couple hints about the guy. His other band is called Espers and apparently he suffers from tendonitis and carpel tunnel syndrome. But somehow he still manages to create wonderful folk songs comparable to “ the rain-soaked progressive art-rock of Nico, Leonard Cohen, and the more downcast recordings from the Canterbury scene.” Sounds like a pretty good group to be compared to to me.
Besides, it’s really rainy here so some rainy day music is in order.
