Wetness Brings Them Out: Mosquitos and "Rainsong"
Today's random tune is Rainsong by Mosquitos. Out of New York City and consisting of Brazilian singer JuJu Stulbach, guitarist Chris Root and keyboardist John Marshal Smith, the band's songs tend to be autobiographical musings on the relationship between Stulbach and Root. Rainsong refers to a sad style of Brazilian music (chorinho) on a sad, rainy day. You can find Rainsong on their 2003 debut album Mosquitos and on the 2004 compilation CD Putumayo Presents: Nuevo Latino.
