The Little Rabbits - "Yeah!" (1998)
I don't really know enough about these guys to say much here. There's not even a Wikipedia entry on them. I recently borrowed this album from a friend, ripped it and have been listening to it quite a lot.
I do know it was recorded here in Tucson. They are from Nantes, France which has become something of a "sister city" to Tucson, at least musically with many of our fine artists going there to play. This past summer a whole slew of them came here to play, including these guys' new band(s). A real cultural exchange going on. I was in New Zealand; missed the whole thing. But people talk reverently about how awesome it was.
As for the album, it's a great mix of rock, punk and turntablism. It's very cool in a very French way. Hints of trip-hop (hey it's from '98) but only insofar as it flavors the album, not that it is trip-hop.
I highly recommend this record!
