ALSO WHITE RABBITS. I'M ONLY GOING TO BLOG ABOUT TWO BANDS EVER AGAIN OR AT LEAST UNTIL TRANSFERENCE LEAKS
(bonus points for one of my favorite band photos ever)
WHITE RABBITS FOR DAYTROTTER
as always, the little essay by sean moeller is a perfect encapsulation of what makes this band so fucking great. foxhunting especially sounds fantastic recorded here. i love what this band do with their multitude of instruments - that whole fuzz section at the end with the piano sounds so ethereal and terrifying. i am beginning to realize why they called their album "it's frightening."
also, i mean, how many radically different incarnations of percussion gun have we heard? there's THE LOUD VERSION, the QUIET SEXY VERSION they played for kexp, and now THIS quiet sexy version, and then there's the version for la blogotheque which is IN THE MIDDLE. i wish more bands would reinvent their songs like this.
these dudes are boss. boss boss boss.
