It’s lime-green Kawasaki time! James Ferraro, the most beloved musician on Earth, took to SoundCloud minutes ago to release Rain, a two-track, 23-minute mix/EP/something-or-another by his new band, BODYGUARD (I think they prefer caps, right?), featuring ambient thuds, sampled shouting, deep-deep bass, fleeting beats, and mountainous guitar soloing. “Rain 1” actually sounds like an elongated version of “Sex With AXE™ On,” except without the sexy R&B vocals. “Rain 2,” in turn, sounds like a shortened version of “Rain 1,” which makes the track also share similarities with “Sex With AXE™ On.” Hear both “Rain” tracks here, and feel free to note whatever similarities you want:
