White Rabbits, of New York City. Spoon's Britt Daniel produced their upcoming album, It's Frightening, and (surprise, surprise!) it sounds very Spoon-like. In a totally great, not-copycat way, I swear.
The rhythm of each song has a slightly off-kilter edge to it. The wobbly beats are just odd enough to satiate that need for something instinctive and special. Recorded with analog tape, the album has an echo-ey, natural sound to it. Just check out their myspace - they are streaming it for free!
I'm pretty excited about this new discovery. Yes!
