Last Saturday I saw the phenomenal movie "Take Shelter" while enjoying one of the few rainy nights in that we have here in LA. It was one of those movies that hits you a few days later and you realize just how amazing it was. I would definitely recommend it to any and everyone, but I’m terrible when it comes to analyzing film so I’ll spare you any feigned philosophical statements. Without giving the plot away, “Take Shelter” is set in a rural town in Ohio creating a backdrop of endless fields beneath brooding skies. Keep that in mind when listening to the closing-credits track “Shelter” from Ben Nichols (frontman of Lucero). ”Shelter” captures that time before a storm when the clouds are just rolling in, the breeze picks up, and there’s a quiet that comes over the streets. There’s an attitude in the piano flourishes and electric guitar sweeps that lets you know a storm is imminent. Nichols’ voice perfectly captures the blue-collar feel matching any rural community of calloused hands from a day of labor. “Shelter” is a track that reminds you, that even when the weather is at its worse, sometimes it can be nice to just sit and listen to the rain.
