Rabbit Ears - Rabbit Ears EP
Label: Go Midnight Records
A duo of musicians, Jeff MacIsaac (instrumentation) and Spencer Moody (vocals), who came together around 8th grade. After 15 years of messing around in different bands, the two decided to pool their talents at vocals and electronics to create Rabbit Ears, which they describe as being heavily influenced by R&B and Hip-Hop.
How Is It?
Besides the lackluster production that does not create any sort of dynamic within any of the songs, the EP is generally just a lackadaisical release that attempts to combine the electronics of Joy Division with techno and blatant dancefloor sexuality. Running at just a little over 10 minutes in length, the EP won't take up much of your time. However, after listening to the first track, "For and Against," you've basically heard the best of it. The lyrics and instrumentation in the following three tracks are meaningless and ultimately annoying with repetition and morphing. Moody's low tenor is exactly like She Wants Revenge and Joy Division; there really isn't much to see otherwise vocally. The first track, however, is a decent enough attempt at Joy Division, sounding about the same as a stripped down She Wants Revenge. Ultimately though, there isn't much to see in this EP, except for maybe some good late night dancefloor-mixtape-fodder.
I Wanna F'ing Tear You Apart: Joy Division, that music thats playing at the club when you're inebriated and aren't really listening, She Wants Revenge.
