Graph Rabbit's therapeutic dream-folk live at Mercury on 11.25

"Less is more" - they say - and Brooklyn's Graph Rabbit have definitely learned that lesson. The band's dream folk is so ethereal and sparse it can almost be mistaken for the random sounds of nature - should we call it ambient-folk then? This is music with supernatural powers: lull yourself to a deep and satisfying sleep with "Only Fields" (streaming below) or stare at your best friend right in the eyes until you can read his/her mind, with "Make it Stop" (video here). Stressed out New Yorkers should go see Graph Rabbits live at The Mercury Lounge on November 25 at 6.30 pm.
