Editorial Reviews

Frightened Rabbit is among the most acclaimed bands of the 2000 s, earning wide-ranging critical applause and a fervent international fan following with their emotionally exhilarating melodies and scathingly frank lyricism. The band's 2010's full-length, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks (FatCat Records), was met with unanimous acclaim both here and at home. The Guardian's Dave Simpson declared that "(Scott Hutchison's) songwriting is sharp throughout and most of their songs - with themes of escape, freedom and reinvention - have huge impassioned choruses that are made to be shouted from the nearest available mountain...This is the sound of a band upping their game." What's more, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks was selected by NPR listeners as one of their "50 Favorite Albums of 2010. " As moving and triumphant on stage as they are on record, Frightened Rabbit has performed countless headline shows, as well as sharing stages with such like-minded artists as Modest Mouse and Atlantic labelmates Death Cab for Cutie. The band has also won over audiences at a scope of international festivals, including Glastonbury, T In The Park, Oxegen Festival, and Latitude in the UK, Australia's Splendour in the Grass, and our own Lollapalooza and South By SouthWest (SXSW).

Dear Music Appreciators,

It always feels so good to find another great album to listen to. Suddenly life is less lame again and there is something new to look forward to. Especially when it's the kind of album that I can put on repeat and listen to over and over again and each time it starts over, rather than thinking "hmm, what should I listen to next?" I find myself wondering "how soon I can get to the record store to pick up the CD?" As a music junkie with too many songs on his iTunes, this has become the ultimate tribute that my music-pickled mind pays to an album - when the digital copy just doesn't do it and I feel like I've got to take the relationship to the next level. If digital is just friends at school, then a trip to the record store means we're gonna stay up all night and freakin' braid each other's hair.

With PEDESTRIAN VERSES, Scotland's Frightened Rabbit has made the kind of album I want to invite to my slumber party.

It's pop, it's rock, it's indie, it's top 40, it's lyrical Scotch on musical rocks, and because it's that rare combination of an entire collection of songs that holds my attention from start to finish, I'll skip the part where I might prattle on about influences or comparisons, quote and analyze lyrics, or use terms like "reverb-drenched" or "radio-friendly" - I'll skip that part and simply say: buy this album, and see if it can hold your attention too.

Sincerely

Constant Listener

"You find out that life is just a game of inches" said Al Pacino in a memorable speech in the film "Any Given Sunday". Scott Hutchinson the vocal and song writing driving force of Scotland's finest Frightened Rabbit would recognise the sentiment. The Frabbit's career has been a stately slow burn particularly in the UK. Their debut the "Midnight Organ Fight" remains one of the most precious break up albums ever, but its predecessor 2010's "The Winter of Mixed Drinks" didn't really stamp its full authority, languished in the play offs and the band still await promotion to the premier division.

"Pedestrian Verse" is their fourth album and as the "fingers crossed review" in the Independent smartly puts it "here's hoping they can also Elbow their way into the mainstream" (Boom boom!). The chances of this are very good as "Pedestrian Verse" is an album which shows that Hutchinson's ability to combine soaring passion with often bleak musical lyricism and mix it into powerhouse songs has increased exponentially. Just listen to the brilliant lead single "The Woodpile" a mix of massive swirling guitars and a chorus so huge it obscures the sun, as Hutchinson pleads "Will you come back to my corner?/Spent too long alone tonight/Would you come and Brighten my corner/A Lit torch to the woodpile eye". Do yourself a favour also check out the "supermarket incident" video that goes with this. The album's opener "Acts of man" again is a big anthem but underpinned by almost Roger Waters like cynicism. Thus the observation that "I see the stumbling pinstriped trouser/Flecks of sick on and off his shoe/Part out the fatty British average/Who lives in the houses around you" is actually one of the kinder lines. These are songs for Broken Britain not least "State Hospital".

If you've ever been lucky enough to see Frightened Rabbit live, you know the best part of the concert is the energy. Not just by frontman Scott Hutchison and the rest of the extremely-talented five-piece band, but by the audience. They're transfixed, a mixed group of equal parts young(ish) men & women who have heard their music, obsessed over the lyrics and made a sometimes-lengthy trek to be in the presence of their favorite band. And not only do Frightened Rabbit not disappoint, but they enthrall. With this latest release, Pedestrian Verse, Frightened Rabbit bring back the painfully raw (and hauntingly authentic) lyrics that made Midnight Organ Fight a standard for any breakup on both continents, but also that energy that fans have come to expect in person. It marries the best parts of this group and does so with aplomb. The third word in the first sentence of the first song is a curse word; the sentence continues and immediately draws you into the story that nearly every song explores. These latest songs are sure to perform well in concert, but until you can get to that packed, sweaty venue that sells out within minutes to hear them live, this is a solid substitute to capture your attention, and if history repeats itself, obsession.

4th studio album from band out of Glasgow, Scotland--grand, epic, powerhouse stadium rock
that packs a gripping reach-for-the-sky ethos. The songs have a distinct sense of size: these
are BIG-scope tunes with a building, driving force that uses taut emotional spaciousness to
inspire and compel. Listening gives you a sense of power and fulfillment, as though something
important just happened and you were part of it. The instruments are sweeping, soaring,
engulfing; and although the sound can be a bit formulaic at times, it is never boring.
Occasionally, the simplicity of updated Celtic folk music creeps into the expansive mix. For all of
its grandiose intention and massive (but not overblown) production, the album never sacrifices
the integrity of intimacy, largely due to Scott Hutchison's rivetingly personal, potent Scottish
brogue vocals. Reminiscent of the Twilight Sad, Airborne Toxic Event, the John Knox Sex Club,
U2, Arcade Fire. If you like your sound served with unapologetically majestic muscle and
dramatic, far-reaching style in huge portions, this will satisfy your hunger. My plate is empty,
and I'm smiling.
