I saw Pepper Rabbit’s name tossed around a bit in pre-SXSW planning and only recently connected that they were the same group Dave Rawkblog has been raving about.
MP3: Pepper Rabbit – Red Wine
Pepper Rabbit write haunted pop music. That’s really all there is. It’s soft melodies with occasionally some stirring trumpet or banjo work to give you goosebumps occasionally. They’re really a pretty well put together songwriting duo. And the best part is that “Red Wine” is probably my least favorite track of theirs. The other songs they’ve got up on their Myspace are even better than this one.
