Mr. Rains is the Media technician in my school, and is one of the few members of staff that can safely be described as a “legend”. His status increased when, one time, we were told he was away because he was “touring with his band”. About a year later and I’m listening to his band’s debut self-titled LP, “Allo Darlin’”. It’s not the most original thing in the world (hell, two lyrics are lifted straight from songs by Weezer and Johnny Cash), but that’s not important. What is important is that it’s some of the cutest, sweetest twee pop you’ll have heard in a long time. Listening to it creates images in my heard of rolling through cornfields in a warm summer day with some cute indie chick in a floral dress, blowing dandelions and kissing in the sunset. One of the best albums of 2010.
