Peter Elkas and Ben Gunning make a virtue out of locating the place in AOR rock where synths take over and ironic carnal knowledge of Supertramp and Joe Jackson becomes a brand new melodic wheeze. Smart alecs for sure, they are often compared to Steely Dan. “Never Had To Fight” and the cool “Dragging Out The Barrel” are robust enough to survive initial smiling and linger in the bloodstream. Seriously softcore and endearing, the Rabbits will appeal to Webb Brothers and Ween lovers. This, their third album, is curiously excellent, well arranged and deliciously accomplished. Catch their buzz.
