Genre: Animation

It is pouring down outside and there is not a glimmer of light in the sky. Not to worry, today it is time to immerse oneself in the aquatic world of one of my all time favourite animators Ivan Maximov and a gorgeous high definition (229mb) version of his 2007 Rain Down From Above. Visitors to the Animation Blog will be well aware of my fascination for his work. Here we are again in the same alternative universe of childhood where a girl and her puppy and three baby elephants exist happily enough until the rains come. Their home is perched high on a hill and the adults, for such there are even in Ivan's universe, leave the youngsters to get on with their chores. The elephants make hay while the sun shines though the onslaught of the deluge wreaks havoc, flooding the homes, washing away the sculptor's clay model and, calamity, sweeping the elephants and the little girl in the red dress down the hillside with a crashing waterfall ahead. No fears. The water spells fun for the other girl and her puppy on the water-driven roundabout and there's always a man with a net around when one needs one. Ivan is very sparing in his use of colour: aforementioned dress, band around the captain's hat and there's that metallic green fish we get to see. His characters are eccentric, whilst the artwork is magnificent, light and shade beautifully realised in the predominantly hand drawn work that has such clear delineation of light and shade; and always that eye for the idiosyncrasies and humour of life. Worth giving the images a click for the detail. Watch Ivan's work and the sun shines.

Limited edition of 500 copies. Young Marble Giants seemed cast into the world fully-formed, but the truth is more complicated. Before anyone outside Cardiff knew them they'd broken up, until a friend named Spike asked them to record two tracks for a compilation he was assembling, in turn leading to a deal with Rough Trade and enduring fame as creators of possibly the perfect debut album.

Multi-instrumentalist and visual artist Sarah Mary Chadwick is not a new face to Melbourne's music community. After moving to Australia from her native New Zealand to pursue a career in music, Sarah spent a decade fronting the grunge band Batrider. Eventually becoming tired of the collaborative requirements intrinsic to band life, Sarah shifted her focus to songwriting independently, drawing inspiration from “weird old New Zealand musicians” like Peter Jefferies, Chris Knox, and Australia’s Pip Proud and the way they tinker away and work for decades for “little to no commercial success.” This inspiration is obvious in Sarah’s performance as she simultaneously savors and mocks the pedestal that her creativity affords her, acknowledging that “it's a position of power being on a microphone” and how “it's a desperate demand to be seen. It's funny and really sad.”

On Buddy Guy's second Silvertone release, he continues the practice of guest appearances begun on Damn Right, I've Got the Blues. In this case, the notables include Paul Rodgers, Travis Tritt, and John Mayall. The finest combination comes when Bonnie Raitt joins Guy on John Hiatt's "Feels Like Rain." Raitt's gritty vocals and sweet slide guitar add a pleasing nuance to the bittersweet track, and it is ultimately the high point of the record. Certain critics and blues purists have derided Guy's search for mainstream success as evidenced by his penchant for guest appearances and non-traditional blues forms, but Guy sounds fantastic in these unconventional situations (witness his burning version of the Moody Blues' "I Go Crazy"). Guy's vocals, often under appreciated, really sell this song. As for his guitar playing, it is slightly below his usually high standards.
