ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rabbit Velvet’s unique lo-fi frappe of synth, strings, and sugary vocals atop infectious beats in chill-pop to dance formats are the focal point on “Fuzz Mother”. It is difficult to place the RV sound with contemporary artists or genres, but it may lie somewhere between dream pop, post punk and the recent modes of witch house expressions. RV's work has always artistically mixed varying sounds and influences, whether in this project or others.

This second album, along with a third evil twin sister mini-album "Ochre Ombre" are finally born digitally, after the last half decade in gestation. Several songs from Fuzz Mother that trickled out in smaller grouped releases over the past few years have been spun on college and Internet radio. “Roses So Red” and “The Owl Song” have been on air frequently at WRSU, while Bella Union’s Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins), selected, “I Can’t Save the World”, to play on his Amazing Radio Show in the UK via BBC Introducing.

RV earned attention on college radio and spins from Wales to Japan and places in between with her virgin solo offering “Crows and Doves”. Mastered by esteemed engineer, Larry Alexander, the album was noted as “Best Of” placement in; Portugal’s Alternative Charts, Scholars and Rogues/Denver, KALX U Cal Berkeley, and WRSU’s Machine Age Voodoo. “Beautiful Things” was also shared on air in London for BBC Introducing while other tracks caught the ears of Irwin Chusid at world famous WFMU among other specialty radio shows.

Rabbit Velvet works from a humble home studio with bare bones mechanics. Hofner Guitars gifted RV with a CT model just before the start of writing for Fuzz Mother that appears on most tracks sometimes as the centerpiece with transe-grunge riffs or cutting through with a jarring solo as per “The Owl Song”. RV is inspired by guitarists; Dr. Know, Johnny Marr, The Edge, and Will Sergeant along with Neil Young’s biting and stark soundtrack for Jim Jarmusch’s “Dead Man”. RV’s guitar sound is primarily in the Impressionistic to Fauve styles, if compared to the visual, and many takes are one-off improvisations. RV is a trained musician's worst nightmare.

Rabbit Velvet, is the solo studio project of Danielle Stauss, branching out from former successful collaborative projects; The Lost Patrol (US), Afterglow, and several other groups and guest vocal appearances. The two aforementioned projects saw Stauss through several artistically acclaimed albums and accolades spanning from The Washington Post to Tape Op and The Big Takeover magazines, to two Asbury Music Awards and placement on Dionysus Records “Innocence is Bliss” compilation along with Nashville New Music samplers. Stauss penned and performed through the first six groundbreaking Lost Patrol albums which some have recently earned the group placement in “History of Dream Pop” annals, among many other favorited lists in the band's heyday. TLP even appears on WFMU's "DVD Gone Wild". Work with Afterglow, a fully live gothic folk ensemble placed the band as designated home openers and "Asbury Park" sweethearts for various international touring acts from The Tedeschi Trucks Band to The Cucumbers, Our Lady Peace, Ron Sexsmith and a slew of others through the world famous venues “The Saint” and other NJ stages, including NJPAC. Afterglow was also earned "Best Female Vocals" and Best Acoustic Band" for The Asbury Music Awards. Stauss has also sung with: Silence, The LatTEr, Lasher 13, and Jason Bonthron. Currently she sings and plays guitar with the fully live jangle-grunge quartet Goodbye Berlin.
