L.A. Unheard: Pepper Rabbit's mercurial folk


Editor's note: Every week, our colleagues at Brand X’s L.A. Unheard column unearth one of L.A.’s best undiscovered acts.

The band: Pepper Rabbit, an Echo Park psych-folk duo.

The sound: Like Grizzly Bear and Mercury Rev taking drugs yet to be invented,the band's music draws on the delicacy of chamber instruments (see: "Clarinet Song") and Xander Singh's guitar work, as well as the more emphatic energy of drummer Luc Laurent's percussion and Singh's powerful pipes.

The details: Pepper Rabbit's debut album, "Beauregard," is out on Kanine Records this week. The duo will return to L.A. after a CMJ stint and a Canadian tour for a show at the Echo on Nov. 18.

The rest: Head over to Brand X to download the song "Older Brother."
