“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
