Ten minutes might seem like an odd runtime for an EP, but Amparo's Rains knows not to overstay its welcome. The three-track instrumental combines gentle, organic guitar work with electronic looping and modulation, creating something a little more than human. Rains is an apt title for this project, a calming cycle of music that want's to remind you its their without making too much of an impact on you.
I'm writing this as New York settles into a sudden 6 inches of snow that will then clear up to 70-degree weather later in the week. Rains will be perfect to have on loop for such a strange, ambiguous weekend. Overall, I get a sense of ambiguity as I listen to the music -- a little melancholy and bittersweet but overall, Rains is uplifting.
