Remember what the dormouse said: "Feed your head." One way to do this is to check out the White Rabbits, a Brooklyn-by-way-of-Missouri indie-rock band touring behind its new release "Milk Famous." In an interview with The Tribune, guitarist Alex Even said working with Mike McCarthy, producer on five Spoon albums, was "pretty amazing." He continued: "He has delicate, pretty ears. He can hear frequencies that I can’t hear anymore. All I can hear is my tinnitus." Even grew up in Northern California, and met the nucleus of the band when they were students at the University of Missouri in Columbia. The band didn’t last long in Columbia, heading to New York City to seek fame and fortune. "I was 19, and I had nothing but boundless naivete and hope," Even said. Fame, at least in the critical community, came with the band’s acclaimed debut "Fort Nightly," in 2007, followed in 2009 by "It’s Frightening," produced by Spoon’s Britt Daniel.
