Stream Rain Parade’s First New Album In 38 Years

In 1981, the college roommates Matt Piucci and David Roback formed a psychedelic rock band called Rain Parade, and Roback’s brother Steven soon joined up on bass. Rain Parade went on to become a crucial part of the Paisley Underground, a tight community of Los Angeles bands who took inspiration from punk but whose sound owed more to starry-eyed ’60s folk-rock. That scene gave us bands like the Bangles, the Dream Syndicate, the Three O’Clock, and Opal, and it also inspired Prince to write songs like “Raspberry Beret.”
