One of the many great bands from legendary New Zealand indie label Flying Nun, the Jean-Paul Sartre Experience put out three albums between 1986 and 1993. Idiosyncratic yet fitting in snugly with the burgeoning indie rock in America and the UK at the time, the band’s unique work has been collected, remastered, and repackaged in a terrific set called I Like Rain: The Story of the Jean-Paul Sartre Experience, which features not only all three albums but a bevy of bonus tracks as well.

He’s just made a quietly powerful new video for the track that echoes the song’s sentiments very well.
