“The Rainwater LP” is a chill collection of tracks from Clarence Greenwood (aka Citizen Cope). Many of the songs are catchy, but not in a radio hit kind of way. You find yourself mumbling them hours (or even days) after hearing them, especially “I Couldn’t Explain Why”. Not only are they catchy, but also versatile. This album could be played around a campfire or blared through car speakers in the summer. True to form though, Greenwood imposes continuous wisdom on his listeners, with lines like “the violence of a few has put the world in harms way”.
