Notes

Rabbit Rabbit Radio, Vol. 3: Year of the Wooden Horse is the third album by wife and husband team Rabbit Rabbit - Carla Kihlstedt (Tin Hat, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, 2 Foot Yard) and Matthias Bossi (Skeleton Key, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Cosa Brava, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth). It features guest appearances by guitarists Fred Frith (Henry Cow, Art Bears, Massacre), Nels Cline (Wilco), Mark Orton (Tin Hat, the Nebraska soundtrack), Shahzad Ismaily (Mark Ribot’s Ceramic Dog, Secret Chiefs 3), Michael Mellender (Sleepytime Gorilla Museum), Ava Mendoza (Unnatural Ways), Joel Hamilton (The Book of Knots, Sasha Dobson), their long-time collaborator Jon Evans (Linda Perry, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan) and more.

For three years, beginning in February, 2012, they released a song on the first day of every month to their subscribers, along with a home-made music video, photos, studio notes, and other arguably relevant insights into their creative process. At the end of each year, they reordered and mastered the year's output and released it to the general public as an album.

In 2014, newly besotted with a their second child, one incredibly amiable fellow named Viggo, this guitarless duo invited their decidedly guitar-laden friends to help keep their ship on course. Every month, they invited a guest guitarist to send them a rhythm track to an as-yet-unwritten song. The pair then built a world of harmony, rhythm, texture and lyrics around each one. The result is an exhilarating mash-up of guitar-driven anthems.
