Scot rock fans rejoice – a new Frightened Rabbit album is on the way!

Following the release of A Frightened Rabbit EP, they’ve recently released a second EP on Atlantic Records, State Hospital, to tide us over.

If you have yet to, why should you check out Frightened Rabbit? Maybe you have a soft spot for a warbly voice and a Glasgow accent.  Maybe you want to hear unconventional lyrics that paint scenes of living room dancing, pub fights, and the bleak end game.  Maybe you like the blend of folk with distortion pedals. Maybe you’re into music that sings of feverish loves and inescapable despairs.

State Hospital bunny trails off The Winter of Mixed Drinks down a path of musical depression aligned with the blunt imagery from the The Midnight Organ Fight. “Boxing Night” swells earnestly while drinking itself into oblivion, and it’s hard to say whether it’s more difficult listen to “State Hospital” or watch the corresponding video.  To listen to Frightened Rabbit is to listen to fatalistic storytelling at it’s finest.

They’ve also just released a single from upcoming Pedestrian Verse, called “Dead Now.” While the video isn’t awe-inspiring (it’s footage from their US tour), it captures the every man life by showing scenes of driving, wandering aimlessly on a sidewalk, using a crosswalk, and going to gigs.  If you look closely, you’ll even catch a glimpse of the Manhattan Bridge.

Pedestrian Verse  is due out this February, and they’ve recently announced a stateside tour for this spring.  Stay tuned.  They’ve been slowly releasing tracks, so in the meantime, check out “Dead Now.”

‘Farmhouse Restaurant’ Replaces Sebastian LC on Ludlow Street

Our suspicions about the Sebastian LC closure late last year were at least partially confirmed this week. Yes, the corner restaurant is back open, but not with the same moniker.
