"Raging Raccoon"

"[Raccoon's songs] ...come across as sophisticated and simultaneously rustic.

Taking inspiration from acts like Okkervil River and Neutral Milk Hotel, Whitfield and co. craft off-kilter folk songs with hearts on their sleeves, as well as some uniquely squelchy electronics.

Though they've flown largely under the radar up until this point, Raccoon have immense potential. "

"Sled Island"

"...with boundless energy and clever hooks that stick for days." -Mark Hamilton - Sled Island Review


Still working on that hot first release.



RaccoonÂ’s songs take shape in the mind of Dillon Whitfield as sparse and simple folk numbers, defined by a memorable melody. This leaves room for the influences of all 5 members (which fall into a vast expanse somewhere between Fleetwood Mac and Neutral Milk Hotel) to imbue the songs with anything from horns or accordion, to gang-percussion and symphonic walls of feedback and synthesizers.

This openness towards diversity translates to the stage as well, where 6 foot inflatable animals, synchronized jumping, or woodland slideshows are not uncommon, or out of place.
