FRIGHTENED RABBIT

The Midnight Organ Fight

2009-02-03

Having performed at SXSW and toured the UK with Death Cab For Cutie, Frightened Rabbit is currently touring the US in support of this, their second album. These Glasgow guys did a nice job of alternating the acoustic and electric songs on this moody folk-rock record. I liked this entire album. A few key tracks are the short instrumental of "Bright Pink Bookmark" and the folky rocker "Heads Roll Off". In "The Twist", the voice and piano gradually give way to tambourine, backing vocals, and drums and it becomes a nice rock song. Try to overlook the band's silly name (Could they not think of anything better?) and give this disc a chance. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
