7 Year Rabbit Cycle

7 Year Rabbit Cycle are a refreshing mix of folk, noise, and a genuinely catchy sound. Personally, out of the three albums posted for you, my favorite is 2003's Animal People. Track two, catchy stuff.

7 Year Rabbit Cycle is Guitarist Rob Fisk, one of the founding members of noise-rock legends Deerhoof, who not only helped write all of that band's material for a little more than half a decade, but created the artwork and identity. Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), Vocalist Kelly Goode (also a member of Deerhoof), percussionist Ches Smith has performed with a great list of legends including John Zorn, Tom Waits, Fred Frith, Nels Cline, Wadada Leo Smith, and Mr. Bungle. Supergroup? Yes.

  2. Ben Chasny never played in 7YRC and Steve Gigante (Dark Inside the Sun/W-S Burn) played drums on the first two albums (and played live during the first two years of the band). He also did some vocals on both albums.

  3. Also, 'Wind Machines' came out in 2004 not 2007.
