Frightened Rabbit at Terminal 5 (May 5, 2016)

By Will Oliver, September 3rd 2016

1_Frightened Rabbit_Terminal 5

Whenever I think of Scottish band Frightened Rabbit, I think of the early days of both this blog, and them as a band, just releasing their breakthrough album The Midnight Organ Fight in 2008. Here we are eight years later and the band sit nice and snug on the Atlantic Records roster, and able to play a place such as Terminal 5.

The show came in support of their new album Painting Of A Panic Attack, a huge sounded record from the group, but one that still maintains that raw sense of emotion that the band made their name from. They were able to fill out the room no problem with their sounds, not always the easiest feat at Terminal 5.

The show also featured an opening set from local New York band Caveman, who recently released their new album Otero War via Cinematic Music Group

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.
