“On White Rabbits’ sophomore release It’s Frightening, the indie veteran of Spoon fame, Britt Daniel, leaves an immediate mark on the album from behind the boards. Album opener “Percussion Gun” kicks off like some pseudo version of “I Want Candy” as performed by the Feelies, with the kind of tight, all-encompassing drum work we haven’t really heard from this band before. And Daniel chooses to build upon that.”—Daniel Rivera

Remember the insanely catchy “Brimful of Asha” from Cornershop? It was pretty ubiquitous in the late ‘90s and for good reason. The British band’s blend of UK pop with traditional Indian sounds was unique and infectious. The group is returning this year with a new single “The Roll Off Characteristics (Of History in the Making)” to be released on May 26th on their own label.
