We're mighty familiar with Kyp Malone, having written a feature about his solo music and a cover story about his main gig, TV On The Radio. Still, longtime enamor or not, we were surprised with how much we liked his solo debut as Rain Machine. Malone's voice sounds like an heirloom, passed down generation by generation. It rings as a truly organic record, accented with bells and loose strings. We recently went by Malone's Greenpoint apartment to sit with him and discover Rain Machine's environmental footprint.
