Pepper Rabbit – Lake House

Los Angeles’ Pepper Rabbit was a band that unfortunately never garnered much fame. This struggle culminated with the break-up of the two-piece in early 2012. Despite the break-up, their music has been getting increasingly popular and still deserves attention. The laid-back, psych-folk the band puts forth is enough to make any hippie weak at the knees. With a slow, yet driving and melancholy, yet hopeful sound, Pepper Rabbit is great whether your feeling depressed or optimistic. Check out the track “Lake House” off their album Red Velvet Snowball below. Read More…

Sean Hayes – When We Fall In

New York City native Sean Hayes has developed quite the knack for perfectly blending elements of rock, soul, and contemporary pop. Like Alex Clare without the money-grabbing dubstep parts, Hayes has been releasing groovy, folk-based acoustic rock since 1999. Hayes’ music is a mix between William Elliott Whitmore and Jason Mraz, where pop stylings and catchy hooks can be used in accordance with soulful vocals and gritty guitar lines. Check out the song “When We Fall In” off his 2010 album Run Wolves Run below. Read More…
