Although they have had very little time to write and record new material due to their extensive touring over the past year, White Rabbits have placed a new tune out on the interwebs. It is actually an oldie, but it is new to us.
The New York-based White Rabbits offered up the track "Cotillion Blues" to the MP3 blog/record label RCRD LBL, where it is currently streaming. The band also spoke about the track, where they said: "This is actually a really old song for us. We were playing this while we were still in college, before we moved to the city. Initially, we wanted it to sound like a Ronettes song or something with a big four-on-the-floor kind of stomp. We recorded a version of it back then with handclaps and castanets, the whole deal. It was probably a little heavy-handed, to be honest. We dusted it off about a year ago and decided to rework the feel a little, so we gave it kind of a sleazy, New Orleans shuffle. Our good friend Jon Natchez (of Beirut - ed) and another girl named Elizabeth came in to play horns and we pretty much just let them loose on it. I did the vocals at about three in the morning one night with about two-thirds of a bottle of whiskey in me."
