Song: Percussion Gun
Artist: White Rabbits
Album: It’s Frightening
Label: TBD Records
Notes: none
Analysis: White Rabbits’ upcoming sophomore album It’s Frightening is produced entirely by Spoon lead singer Britt Daniel. The album’s opener ‘Percussion Gun’ is a hammering, melodic track, complete with ghostly background wailing, harmonic pianos and a constant killer drum beat. This also happens to be the first song I’m hearing from the group; seeing Britt Daniel’s name attached drew me in. ‘Percussion Drum’ is instantly addictive, and the sparse guitars make them feel that much more important when they come in. It may be the most impressive introduction to a band all year, I can’t really find any flaws in it. I initially planned on giving it an 8, then after another listen I went to a 9, and one more listen bumped it up once more. It’s a gem, I can’t wait to check out the rest of the record.
Rating: 9.5
