Enter the seethingly sexy and calamitously cool dreamworld of Gram Rabbit. They are great in every little way, and she wears bunny ears well. A friend turned me on to this band a coupla years ago, and this just came up in random play on the old iThingy, inspiring this fawning post. Fawn. Post.
Gram Rabbit – “Dirty Horse” mp3 (play/download)
From their “Music To Start a Cult To” album, available from Amazon.
‘Tis the year of the BUNNY and I have found the perfect song to set the fluffy tailed new era bounding and breeding into the fertile green meadows of the future. I present to you bouncing mammals, Comfy Chair, performing their original Opus De Leporidae, “The Wabbit.” Comfy Chair’s fine CD entertainment products may be purchased here. Gung Hay Fat Choy! Eat some lettuce and hop around.
Comfy Chair – “The Wabbit” (mp3)
Titus Andronicus – “A More Perfect Union” mp3
Titus Andronicus are as much a carny of crazed vagabond poets as they are a hard hitting, dangerous sounding punk rock band. Pogues, Clash, Springsteen, Replacements, Pixies and Nirvana influences all prominent, but it’s almost silly to say that, since the voice that shines through this material is so blazingly fresh and sincere. The comparisons also end with their arrangements. This song for example, develops way past your standard three minute power-pop burst, into an epic piece stuffed with simultaneously dire and humorously clever narrative, and relentless musical invention that grows organically and never seems forced. This anthemic track is from their new album, The Monitor, for which they are currently on Monitour. Dates on their myspace. Tip o’ the brim to Tony in Louisville for sending linky. Stumendous.
