Show Review

The heart clutching strums of guitar and strong melodic blasts of horns and vocals on Pepper Rabbit's "Harvest Moon" has been a real pull since the band released their Kanine approved debut Beauregard last fall. Perhaps you might remember how we invited the band to stop by our CMJ happenings for a Rockwood Session in October (should have that video for you soon). Now the track gets an inventive set of visuals, courtesy of a story that takes you through "Windows into the Unknown".

Artist Bio

Like some sort of bohemian troubadours for the 21st century, Pepper Rabbit, formed by Xander Singh and Luc Laurent, has been able to pull from their shared experiences to create something altogether unique and brilliant. Their debut album Beauregard (out now on Kanine Records) plays like a patchwork quilt woven from their adventures, whether it be featuring the horn section from a Bayou funeral procession or a chord progression borrowed from Southeast Asia.

Introduced by a mutual acquaintance, Luc initially signed on as drummer for Xander's solo project. Their first shows together took place in India, where Xander's parents had relocated. During the trip the two realized a sort of musical chemistry, and upon returning to the states, Xander moved around the country looking for a place to settle down.

Eventually drawn to New Orleans by a producer/friend to lay down a record, the duo would meet up intermittently in New Orleans to record throughout 2008 and part of 2009. Beauregard is heavily influenced by the people encountered in this post-Katrina New Orleans. Eventually the duo settled in Los Angeles and recruited a third member to play live working out how to incorporate the vast array of instruments including banjos, trumpets, electric guitar, pianos, ukuleles, drums, clarinets and vocals from the album into the live setting.
