Liner Notes: God Of Rain, recorded over a 16-month period in Boston's Chinatown, is even more dynamic than Shave Librarian's previous three releases, Ariel, Done Dog Brown and The Butter Thief. As with all Shave Librarian albums so far, this CD is conceptual, held together by a subtle thematic thread of Asian mystique and novelty, viewed through Western eyes of wonderment and naiveté. The CD begins with the Eastern-influenced "Oriental Jar" and "New Silver Age," moving through the euphoric time-line story of "Kooper Pills." The Asian theme peaks with the title track "God Of Rain," which is loosely based on ancient Chinese mythology. The second half of the CD draws the listener towards the West, with the Beatle-esque "Shining Bread," the jazzy "At The Party," turning darker and more mysterious with "Where You Buy Your Days" and the final track "MODA," which is a "cyborg future western."

Liner Notes: The Butter Thief, with its seductive allure and ethereal edge, is music for the thinking person. Shave Librarian crafts relentless, visceral hooks that will hypnotize you into a full-blown, euphoric Shave devotee. Sit back and enjoy the aural layers through a competent sound system to fully recognize Shave Librarian's message. Don't be surprised when you succumb to their magic; they weave a potent spell with their unprecedented delivery. Very imaginative. Halcyon, mystical, magical...
