Big Green Bus: a Spotify playlist by The Pains

"In about an hour, I need to trudge through the rain to Kurt’s house to record some music. I have no foresight in life, which usually isn’t a problem. In this instance, however, it means I have to stop first at the bodega on my street and buy an umbrella that will cost twice as much as it would were it not raining. So here are a bunch of songs that sound pretty good while clutching a coffee mug, looking out onto a slate gray Brooklyn morning and hoping for at least a walkable drizzle." - Kip
