Somehow Pepper Rabbit managed to not only write and record a sophomore full-length amidst a heavy touring schedule, but piece together a nifty little free EP as well. The 3-track release from the L.A.-based psych-poppers is yours to enjoy exclusively here at Consequence of Sound. Happy you stick to this site now, arent ya?
First up is the lead single of the upcoming Red Velvet Snow Ball entitled Rose Mary Stretch. Its a wickedly fun tune perfect for a summer days drive or eves gathering with buds. Next is a cover of the Miniature Tigers track Gold Skull, remarkably faithful despite slightly different synths, a bit more percussion, and brighter stylings. The final track is a spacey demo of another new album track, Lake House.
Together, the tracks make a strong case for a worthy followup to last years well received Beauregard. You can listen to and download the EP using the widget below, and look out for Red Velvet Snow Ball from Kanine Records on August 9th.
The group is currently on the last leg of a tour with Givers, and theyll continue their relentless touring schedule in September with Braids (plus tons of other acts along the way). Peep the full itinerary just ahead.
