Let Raindrop take you on an incredible journey with Bob Dylan’s 116th Dream

A little while ago when we launched the very first instalment of our Needle In The Hay vinyl competition, Sydney psych wizard Raindrop entered his then unreleased album Mild Meltdowns.

And well, it was incredible. So incredible that it scored third place in that year’s competition.

Bob Dylan’s 116th Dream, the sprawling and hypnotic new track from Sydney’s Raindrop, will leave you in a peaceful state of reverie.

Now, Mild Meltdowns is almost available for listening everywhere, and we’ve all just been treated to third single from it, Bob Dylan’s 116th Dream.

Clocking in a whopping six minutes, this new track will leave you feeling maybe a little nauseated, but completely satisfied.

Throughout the track’s duration, the artist swims through lush scenes of hallucinatory strangeness to deliver six minutes of solid grooves and pure tranquility.

I definitely urge you to go on this journey with Raindrop. He’ll take you places you’ve never been before, and places you’ll never want to leave.


Do yourself a favour and listen to the new track above, and make sure you catch Raindrop live at our Needle In The Hay Finalists’ Party or at his album launch show. Details below:
