Resent the humidity which ensues from a monsoon shower? Let B-Quartet’s funk-rocker ‘Dry Rain’ cool you down. If you’re done with 2019, celebrate the passing of the year with 'December Weather' with the boys from Fader.

If you can’t ‘Sleep’ because of the endless pitter-patter, you might as well let Tim De Cotta serenade you. By the time you’re done listening to The Observatory’s moody epic ‘Wait for the Real Storm’, chances are you’ll be knee-deep in a storm yourself.
