Portland, OR crew Rabbits checks in with a sludgy, punk-inspired tome on their 10-track offering LOWER FORM. This unit takes the dirty grooves straight from the Am Rep catalog and juxtaposes the free form wooziness of Black Flag (“Invisibugs”) only to feed them into a stoner metal wood chipper, resulting in a nasty hybrid style chock full of caustic chaos (“A Tale of Tales”). Razor sharp vocals lead this viscous assault while a syrupy bass keeps the entire album hypnotically enticing (“Duck, the Pigs”) and jagged guitars supply the insurmountable abundance of anger continuously boiling over with unbridled intensity (“Weight Here”). Intentionally ugly and hard to digest, Rabbits produce a callous form of abrasive music custom made for people who enjoy unsettling forms of heaviness.
