The music of Gainesville-based trio Rabbit Punch induces a feeling not unlike riding the moving walkway at O’Hare International Airport, a strange sense of drama emerging from the endlessly repeating neon rainbow overhead. Distant guitar howls and digital bleeps and bloops call out like spirits from a binary forest, while synthesized melodies, the occasional processed vocals, and dirge-like beats add to the sense that something important is imminent.
