Frightened Rabbit
Midnight Organ Fight
(Fat Cat)

Scotland appears to be picking up momentum with a scene carrying the likes of heavyweights Idlewild and The Twilight Sad. Selkirk foursome Frightened Rabbit have successfully combined Scottish folk and indie rock/pop. Rather than trying to sound American, brothers Grant and Scott Hutchinson drench their lyrics with a heavy Scot accent, similar to aforementioned countrymen Twilight Sad. The two bands differ in their foundations in that the Twilight Sad douse their sound in thick atmospheric/shoegaze affects and Frightened Rabbit have a more traditional folk base layer. “Good Arms Vs. Bad Arms” prominently displays this notion with heavy North-Atlantic percussion and slide guitar. “Fast Blood” is a track sounding more like the band’s contemporaries with jangling electrics and reaching, yearning vocals. The barnyard stomp of “Old Old Fashioned” pleads for abandoning everyday distractions in favor of human interaction. A better written and produced sophomore effort, The Midnight Organ Fight fights the good fight and will hopefully the group will continue in a similar direction in the future.
