LA pop duo Pepper Rabbit — comprising multi-instrumentalists Xander Singh and Luc Laurent — style lush, playful soundscapes out of the rich selection of music resources, from horns and strings to vintage analog synthesizers. Called for just one of Singh’s short-lived domestic pets, Pepper Rabbit had been created after Xander spent many years going after a single career, liberating an recording, Whik, in 2006. Throughout a trip to Boston, Singh was launched to Luc Laurent with a shared friend, plus they discovered these were musically simpatico. Singh visited New Orleans to record an recording, and Laurent tagged along to greatly help out in the studio room; in a short time, what began like a single project evolved in to the first Pepper Rabbit recording, 2010’s Beauregard. The recording received enthusiastic evaluations, and after Laurent resolved in LA after completing college in Boston, Pepper Rabbit started playing regularly along the Western Coast and regularly touring all of those other country, both like a headliner and starting for Ra Ra Riot, Givers, Enthusiasm Pit, and Small Tigers. (On the highway, Pepper Rabbit had been sometimes joined with a third multi-instrumentalist, Jonathan Allen, who helped the duo re-create its studio room audio on-stage.) In 2011, during downtime from the street, Pepper Rabbit released an EP, Rose Mary Stretch out, and in August from the same 12 months, they released their second full-length task, Crimson Velvet Snow Ball. Documented at a studio room in Washington with extra work carried out in Singh’s house studio room, Crimson Velvet Snow Ball premiered through the Brooklyn-based indie label Kanine Information.
