Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow (A Blog the Jerk! Comp)

It's raining hard here at Blog the Jerk! HQ (San Francisco), so I thought I'd make a rainy day comp for the few to no people who care.
Most of the songs deal with rain or bad weather, but a few are just songs that sound good when you're indoors and it's gray out.
It's a really mellow comp - aside from a few tracks- so make some tea or coffee grog, pick up a book and enjoy your heater.

  2. I love the Peppermint Store! Didn't get any of this stuff from there though.
    What I DID get there a couple months ago was the World of Oz lp which is amazing if you like quirky psychedelic music.
