Rabbitsss is a musical collaboration between Rae Howell and NY sonic-visual artist Jon Cohrs.
Penguins (2014) is the debut release from Rabbitsss. Jon’s work is heard in the smattering of beats & samples, the hidden shuffling of feet, a squeak of a chair, the intentional human presence, whilst Rae’s modulating musicianship creates a driving sense of melody. Produced across North America, Europe & Australia it’s a fab addition to the Sunwrae collection! Released in the USA by Misty Fjord records, Penguins is also available on itunes.
“Penguins is a study in pulsating electronic, that type that lives through the imaginary, imperfect strings of organic (the percussive instruments) and the discreet charm of synthetic sound.. delicate textures suspended between a colorful rendition of the rigors of contemporary music (Steve Reich, Terry Riley) and ambient pop (Stereolab, above all).”
– Pop Matters 2014
“Penguins unspools in bright calm clarity, its overlapping marimba, vibraphone and keyboard motifs locking and interlocking like colored puzzle pieces, its hiccuping percussion delineating rhythms with crayon-emphatic precision.”
