San Fermin's new second album is Jackrabbit, and you can hear in this World Cafe session how things have changed for the band since its debut. The group's self-titled debut was entirely written and arranged by Ellis Ludwig-Leone — for him, the band had grown out of a post-Yale composition project.

The band gained an identity along the way, and now Ludwig-Leone writes parts with specific musicians in mind who influence the songs themselves. Listen to this session to find out about those rabbits running around the lyrics to these new songs — the secret, it turns out, is in the "running."
