Relcad’s Rainy-Day MP3

The song “G-Mart” by Relcad is tagged on his website,, with this enticing note: “It is likely you will hear that rain sample again.” The track indeed begins with a quiet field recording of rain — light rain, not torrential. And the track follows at a pace to match, even as it musters a steady beat, occasional bursts of pneumatic noise, and lo-fi effects that lend the piece a homespun vibe (MP3).

Relcad is the pseudonym of Seattle-based musician Alex Duff. Additional info at
