Early January tends to be a month of regret for me, as it’s when I discover all the albums I missed from the previous year that I should have included on the Top 31. Here’s the first one: San Fermin’s Jackrabbit. This is the Brooklyn-based band’s second album, but it’s the first one I’ve heard. Based on the strength of the title song alone, I’ll be checking out their debut album from 2013 very soon.
Listen above, and I’m sure you’ll agree. And if you’re like me, you’ll turn around and buy tickets to their upcoming show at Neumos on March 29. They’ll be playing with Esme Patterson, who you may remember from such albums as Shakey Grave’s And the War Came, which was my #5 album in 2014.
