Benjamin Francis Leftwich Covers M83 // Frightened Rabbit

By Will Oliver, September 11th 2012

Benjamin Francis Leftwich will begin a large tour in the U.S./U.K. this fall. To celebrate it, he’s recorded a few covers. He covered M83’s “Midnight City” (you may know it), and Frightened Rabbit’s powerful “Swim Until You Can’t See Land”.

Both are stunning covers that Benjamin takes into his zone and releases as faithful, yet unique adaptation. Take a listen below.

[new]: Frightened Rabbit – State Hospital

By Will Oliver, August 16th 2012 — with 2 comments

Frightened Rabbit are releasing a new EP titled State Hospital on September 25. The title track from the EP was shared on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show last night.

If you’re a fan of the Scottish bands work in the past, you will have no problem with this new track. It’s more warm, uplifting rock from the band. Not many do rock with a dramatic flair quite like these guys.

Take a listen below.

Frightened Rabbit Announce New EP

By Will Oliver, July 10th 2012

Frightened Rabbit are releasing a new EP on Canvasback/Atlantic Records. The EP is untitled for now, but it will precede their album for Atlantic Records, their major-label debut. I’m interested to see how the new stuff sound. I’m pretty confident the band will still stay true to their sound, even if they’re a part of a much bigger label.

Frightened Rabbit – My Brother Tom, The Green Beret (The Philistines Jr. Cover)

By Will Oliver, September 22nd 2010 — with 3 comments

Woah this cover that Frightened Rabbit did is blowing my mind right about now. It’s a cover of The Philistines Jr.’s “My Brother Tom, The Green Beret”. It shows a side of them that I haven’t heard before. Scott’s vocals hit a warm baritone that I’m digging the hell out of. The Joy Division-esque percussion and jangly guitars do the original plenty of justice.

The cover is taken from If a Lot of Bands Play in the Woods…? , a compilation cover albums that will accompany The Philistines Jr.’s new album.The National, Jónsi, Mercury Rev, Tokyo Police Club and Tapes N’ Tapes are also featured on it.

Frightened Rabbit – Fake Empire (The National Cover)

By Will Oliver, August 30th 2010 — with 1 comment

Frightened Rabbit are an interesting choice to cover The National. Scott Hutchison’s thick accent certainly adds a different perspective, but when you really think about it, both bands sing about a lot of the stuff we go through in every day life. So it fits better than I initially thought. The band only plays a bit of it, before transitioning right into their very own song, “Backwards Walk”. Check it out below, via Cover Me.
