The acclaimed band from Montreal, BRAIDS, have had an amazing year playing festivals across Europe and Canada. Their breathtaking sounds are truly inspiring to behold. Promoting debut album Native Speaker with supporting acts Pepper Rabbit and Painted Palms joining them for fall dates, the trio land at Bottom of the Hill Sept. 27.
Pepper Rabbit will be bringing their sweet folk-pop tunes that are sure to brighten up any day with their lush and varied arrangements featured on their recent album Red Velvet Snow Ball.
The Los Angeles-based duo Pepper Rabbit, consisting of Luc Laurent and Xander Singh, unveiled what they call “the most straightforward pop song I’ve ever written,” Singh say of the track Murder Room.
Murder Room is a centerpiece of Red Velvet Snow Ball, released August 9th, on Kanine Records. Unlike the duo’s first LP, Red Velvet Snow Ball was recorded in short bursts between legs of Pepper Rabbit’s non-stop touring schedule. In between shows with Passion Pit, Ra Ra Riot, Givers, Freelance Whales and more, Laurent and Singh spent time building on their collaboration in the studio and experimenting with the eleven different instruments that found their way onto the album.
Filter called the songs “happy and haunting all at once.
In other news, the generous folks over at Noisetrade.com are running a limited-time offer exchanging Pepper Rabbit’s debut LP, Beauregard, for nothing more than an email address. Fans just being introduced to the band through Rose Mary Stretch or Murder Room, will be pleased to find the band’s 2010 effort well worth the price of an email.
