Album Review

Midnight Organ Fight, the second studio outing from Scottish indie rockers Frightened Rabbit, is actually the group's first proper album, as 2006's engaging yet slight Sing the Greys consisted largely of demos. Retaining its predecessor's raw, nervy center while introducing elements of proper, arena-fueled grandiosity, due in large part to the band's fiery performances but also to some deft knob-twiddling from Interpol and the National producer Peter Katis, the 14-track collection is essentially a breakup album, but one that, despite its brutal and frankly disseminated subject matter, is so musically uplifting and emotionally charged that it manages to inspire, even at its most venomous. Lead singer/songwriter Scott Hutchison's poetic yet primal ("Snake hips/Red city kiss/And your black eyes roll back") wordplay and coiled and wavering tenor, the latter of which falls somewhere between the terminally oppressed bleat of Robert Smith and the ardent muscularity of fellow countrymen Big Country's Stuart Adamson, leads the charge on standout cuts like "The Modern Leper," "Fast Blood," and "The Twist," trying desperately to bend what's already been broken back into shape while simultaneously stomping it to bits. Even the album's lone non-breakup song, the propulsive, theism-baiting "Head Rolls Off" ("Jesus is just a Spanish boy's name/How come one man got so much fame?) manages to feel like it's trying to pick a fight and buy you a drink at the same time, a notion that pretty much sums up the remarkably beautiful and brazen Midnight Organ Fight to a T.

Customer Reviews

This is incredible

Afte losing faith in the music industry because of horrible bands like Fall Out Boy, Short-Stack, Lady Ga-Ga and other complete trash, it's safe to say because of these guys my faith has been restored and then some. The best compliment I can give is that I cannot stop listening. It is the music i've been searching for.

Outstanding Album

This is a great rock album. Stand out tracks are Modern Leper, Old Old Fashioned, The Twist, Backwards Walk and Poke. THis album will be on many "best of 2008" lists at the end of the year. Highly recommended for people who like guitar-heavy songs with clever lyrics.

Great Nusic

I first heard their music in the Chuck TV Show and fell in love in with it. Though the same can be said for pretty much all music from Chuck

Biography

Formed: 2004 in Glasgow, Scotland

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Playing clever but purposefully naïve pop in the manner of the Vaselines, the Twilight Sad, and the Clean, Frightened Rabbit sound a good bit bolder than their moniker would suggest, though it suits their lively but nervous musical personality. Frightened Rabbit was founded in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2004, when guitarist Scott Hutchison and his brother Grant, a percussionist who -- like his sibling -- prefers to keep his last name a secret, began recording demos of songs they had written.
