Biography

At first, it's easy to mistake the White Rabbits for just another set of New York City dance-rock hipsters in the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah tradition, but a second look reveals a quirkier and more rewarding aesthetic. A sextet featuring two drummers and a piano player, the White Rabbits refer to their music as "honky tonk calypso," and their cheerful blend of calypso, reggae and ...

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard "Percussion Gun" by White Rabbits my initial thought was the Adam and the Ants revival was about to commence. Check it out, its the "Kings of the Wilds Frontier" meets Radiohead. The damn song has been been stuck in mind for days and it is frightening what a undiscovered pop gem it is.

This is the "Wabbits" second album which comes hot on the back of their excellent debut "Fort Nightly" (albeit it wore its "Spoon" influences fairly openly, sample the "The Plot" and the joyous "Kid on my shoulders"). The Spoon theme contiunes here with Britt Daniel from said band producing "Its Frightening" by yet another Brooklyn six piece band. The particular New York borough must be getting very crowded with neighbours Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, the Antlers and a host of others. It is becoming the epicentre of the American Indie scene and appears to have a neighbourhood alchemy that can churn out the most inventive bands on the planet at the moment.

White Rabbits are less complex and original than the aforementioned bands but no worse for it. They are a wonderful pop/rock band who major on the catchy chorus and driving riffs.

"Its Frightening" contains a couple of weak tracks ("right where they left you" drives me to distraction and "Midnight and I" is just a bit on the dull side ) hence 4 stars but these are easily forgiven by the albums standouts.

- Firstly you must get the album highlight "Percussion gun", take a days sick leave, do community service whatever ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Tasty 27 Jan 2010
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I am endebted to Becky Barn Owl once again for
bringing splendid new music to my attention which,
without her extensive knowledge and good taste,
I might otherwise have easily missed.

It seems that I, too, have acquired an enthusiasm
for White Rabbits very much akin to her own.
Their second studio album 'It's Frightening' is a very
tasty affair (as was their 2008 debut 'Fort Nightly').

This six-piece, Brooklyn-based band are a fine little
ensemble turning out well-crafted and intelligent rock.

At a first hearing things seem a bit rough around the edges
but once the sound begins to be absorbed through our sensory
and critical faculties it quickly becomes apparent that both
the structure and ambience of these ten compositions is very
far from ordinary in both conception and performance.

White Rabbits have a distinctive and memorable style.
The project passes in and out of focus in not much more
than half-an-hour but leaves a big wave in its wake.

The melodic and rhythmic structure of the songs is quirky and
nicely unpredictable. 'Midnight and I' is a strong case in point.
The angular chord progression together with some crafty, disembodied,
dream-like vocal harmonies and vivid percussion is stunning.

Alexander Even's capable voice and guitar and Matthew Clark and
Jamie Levinson's insightful and idiosyncratic drumming skills
are among the band's finest assets. It's a good noise!

There really isn't a duff track in the bunch.

I particularly enjoyed the shuffling beats and rolling melody
of 'They Done Wrong / We Done Wrong'. The epic character of
the central section is particularly satisfying.

Its frightening indeed as a result of impending senility I forgot to tick the age box for the review - apologies for the dual posting on this!
