Not my father's jazz.

"My father has been a fan of jazz all of his life. I have yet to expose him to this album for fear of him disowning me. Ether Bunny, the side project of Daniel Vahnke of the industrial band Vampire Rodents, is a bouillabaisse of jazz samples assembled over programmed drum beats. The results are surprising. The music is kind of difficult to put into words. It has some of the basic concepts of jazz, but it lacks the improvisational aspects, replacing them with the structure of industrial, hip hop, and other forms of dance music. The artwork and song titles are indicative of the demented children's music idiom that Daniel Vahnke also brings into a lot of Vampire Rodents' music. Ether Bunny is highly entertaining in a weird fashion and probably not for everyone. This may appeal to fans of industrial or acid jazz music...or not. Let's just say that if you like the samples provided, then you would probably enjoy the whole album."
