Fierce Bad Rabbit

Spools of Thread
Self-released

Comparing the packaging for Fierce Bad Rabbit's self-titled debut to Spools of Thread, its latest offering, perhaps best illustrates the band's notable progression. While the inaugural release had exactly zero frills — sandwiched between two pieces of card stock the act's members likely cut themselves, the disc came stuffed in a plastic sleeve, and the music on it was artful, if not completely polished — Thread is more carefully considered, from the art direction to the photography to the music. The playing is every bit as accomplished as before, but these songs are more memorable and compelling thanks to tighter arrangements, more interesting instrumental diversions, heightened dynamics and stronger melodies. Thread contains fifteen tracks — about five more than most full-lengths reasonably require — and it's a consistently rewarding listen throughout.
