OK, this may be an odd question: How would a mash-up between Rasputina and Tilly And The Wall sound? It’s hard to think about as one would believe the result would be a bit awkward. But it’s not; just listen to “Sleep” by Blue Rabbit. There’s the dark cello, a Rasputina signature. And pop-riddled vocals are sung by multiple individuals in a manner quite like Tilly And The Wall. And here’s the kicker: it works, and it works well.
Blue Rabbit is a San Francisco-base collective currently eight strong, featuring three primary female vocalists and a slew of string instruments only one of which is a guitar. Aside from the aforementioned cello, you’ll find a Celtic harp, a few additional cellos, organ-ish keys, and an emphasis on percussion.
Separate is the latest release by this group and it can be found on CD Baby.
