Why do we like this?
I've mentioned my "wave theory" on new music before (see Memory Tapes), which estimates that roughly every two weeks I find an album that stands above the rest.  While my timing may have been off (it has been more than a month), I believe I have once again caught that seventh wave. The new album by White Rabbits, It's Frightening, is refreshingly mind blowing. Released in May of 2009, their second full-length was produced by Spoon's Britt Daniel, whose influence stands out.

This album is certainly worth getting your hands on. I have played it a number of times consecutively now, and can't wait to dig down deeper. Perhaps its only flaw is its brevity: at just under 35 minutes, I can't help but wanting more.

What's better than a new Spoon album? Well, nothing. But what's almost just as good? The new White Rabbit album. [Britt Daniel of Spoon] injects his beat-beat-beat driven style into White Rabbits' more adventurous, experimental, and spacey musical instincts, resulting in incredible combinations like the James Bond bassline, played on piano, on "Lionesse," creeping under stellar vocals and fantastic guitar work.  You simply will not find a better indie rock album this year.  It gets my highest praise, my strongest recommendation, and has already gotten five straight-through listens from me.  In my busy, music-laden universe, that's the highest possible praise - Berkeley Place
