One band that I swooned over during CMJ was definitely Pepper Rabbit - Disclaimer: I'm pretty sure any band that makes beautiful music and has the word Rabbit in their name is going to elicit some major musical crushing from me. That said, this LA Duo just released a gorgeous album entitled Beauregard on Kanine and are currently touring around Canadia with other I Rock I Roll faves The Rural Alberta Advantage (what a match up!).
These lovely folk-pop songs will delight you upon first listen and then somehow haunt you for days later - definitely one of my absolute new bands to watch that people will be talking about a lot next year.
Pepper Rabbit - Babette!
