here's a fantastic new psyched-out, 60s-worshiping track, I Am The Rain from Liverpool-based all-girl psych-folk/pop trio Stealing Sheep {Becky, Emily & Lucy} from their new "I Am The Rain" EP (2011). 

I Am The Rain is a fleeting, tripped-out, eclectic, percussion-laden, 60s nostalgia-tinged, psych folk track, with hypnotic chanting blending with swirling mellifluous three-part harmonies. I Am The Rain is reminiscent of the Velvet Underground {Venus in Furs} et The Beatles {Tomorrow Never Knows}, enjoy!
