Michael David has made many kinds of records, but always with other people — as one half of dance duo Classixx, and one third of Cascine-signed pop group Mt. Si. On There in Spirit / Rain II, Michael's solo debut, he bends organic instruments: guitars chop and glimmer, and beats cascade and push forward, but always with a sense of gentle resignation. This is the sound of a mind searching through time, exhuming memories and emotions ― good and bad ―to try and know, recapture, reclaim, and most importantly, feel. The B-side features two new takes on Rain II — an alternate, slow version and a remixed version by fellow seeker, Jex Opolis.
