The weather in New York has been abysmal, and the atmosphere doesn’t seem to give a fuck that it’s going to be June in about two weeks. Let’s all sob together!
I thought that it might be fun to put together an assortment of rainy day, lazy Sunday jams, and it just so happens that the French do them very well.
I hope you enjoy it.
