Product Description

White Rabbits recently moved cross-country from the Midwest to the Big Apple (smart move, rock musicians) and have since signed to Say Hey Records, on which the band is releasing Fort Nightly. This debut album opens with a catchy piano riff, bright guitars, spooky background vocals, and energetic drums on "Kid On My Shoulders," which moves into an eerie and forceful chant that somehow reminded me of the guards in "The Wizard of Oz." Without a moment to breathe, the album goes into the fast-paced "The Plot," which sounds like a combination of The Strokes at their best with vocal harmonies reminiscent of early Jackson 5. "Navy Wives" is a fun tune with off-beat guitars and calypso-inspired percussion, "While We Go Dancing" sounds just like it came off an '80s disc jockey's playlist, and "I Used To Complain, Now I Don't" could be played at a (very hip) island resort. White Rabbits have garnered comparisons to artists on the famous ska label 2 Tone Records, and this analogy is especially apparent on "March of The Camels," which reminds me of The Specials' "Ghost Town." Towards the third quarter of the album, White Rabbits get even spookier, if only because of their astonishing ability to combine creepy sounds with memorable riffs and spot-on three-part harmony.

The most exciting indie release I've heard all year, and if you can believe it, they are even better live! For fans of Spoon, Walkmen (although these are a stretch as WR have originality up the wahzoo, just points of reference really). Lots of great drums (two drummers!), enticing guitars and pounding keys. In all the wonderful noise the amazing thing is that the lyrics all stand out and the melodies are cathy as hell. You'll be bouncing along from start to finish. Take a chance on this, I promise you won't be let down. High points are "Kid On My Shoulders","The Plot","While We Go Dancing" and "I Used To Complain, Now I Don't".

I saw White Rabbits live in Chicago this summer, and they were amazing. Almost every member played multiple instruments throughout the set. You could tell they were having fun doing what they do.

Fort Nightly, their debut album, sounds just like their live shows. To me it sounds like a tropical Wolf Parade. I've been listening to it constantly since I bought it; it's fantastic.

I have just recently gotten in the White Rabbits and I think their music is amazing. It is almost like an upbeat fusion of a modern Pink Floyd... if that makes sense. Plenty of musical instruments to tantalize the ears.

I'm always looking for new music. White Rabbits is simply amazing. I definetely recomend this album for every single fan of alternative music. This is pure rock greatness. Best debut since Arcade Fire's Funeral. Best tracks the plot, tourist trap and while we go dancing, but really, just get the whole album because is a great secuence of music. You have to listen to it entirely. Peace

Best indie CD I've heard in a long time. And catch their live show! I hate when bands are awful live and their CDs are overproduced-- this is not at all the case with White Rabbits.
