“This is the House” features a raw and beautiful vocal from Carla Kihlstedt. It penetrates the heart muscle with the help of Matthias Bossi's thunderous drums and the warmly swarming strumming of Jon Evans. Written in the studio (Brick Hill in Orleans', MA) - learned while recording - egged on by its own fragile existence, it’s the perfect accompaniment to your early fall days.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes be damned!

Rabbit Rabbit is the song-spinning duo of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi. Collectively, this husband and wife team are founding members of the iconic bands Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat, 2 Foot Yard, Causing a Tiger, The Book of Knots, and Fred Frith’s Cosa Brava, and have played with Tom Waits, Mike Patton, Skeleton Key, Madeleine Peyroux, Tracy Chapman, John Vanderslice, St. Vincent, Carla Bozulich, Pretty Lights and The Tiger Lillies. Between them they have written music for the International Contemporary Ensemble, The Bang On a Can All-stars, The ROVA Saxophone Quartet, InkBoat, The Joe Goode Performance Group and Team Meat.
But Rabbit Rabbit dares to peel back these influences, revealing an intimate and dramatic music that is all their own. Drawing on their love of art song, folk song, industrial music, improvised music and heart-wrenching balladry, and rendered on a motley assortment of acoustic instruments, their songs are raw and beautiful, sparse and rich, lighthearted and full of pathos.
When the stars align, and they often do, they are joined by engineer/producer/bassist/guitarist Jon Evans whom you may know from his work with Tori Amos, Linda Perry and many others (jonevansmusic.com).
In keeping with their fiercely independent nature, in February, 2012, they launched Rabbit Rabbit Radio as a way to connect with their listeners in a more meaningful way in this post-label world. On the first day of every month they release a new Rabbit Rabbit song to their subscribers, along with a video, photos, and other relevant insights.
