Biography

Frightened Rabbit are a four-piece band from Selkirk, Scotland, now based in Glasgow. Essentially the work of songwriter/frontman Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit play intense, emotional guitar-rock, categorized by Hutchison's raw vocals —which are often pushed into a keening, faltering falsetto— and predilection for writing songs about heartbreak.

Having bought the album, I listened to it roughly twenty times in the first week. Each listen continues to reveal something new in the music, be that an illusive lyric in the rasping vocals of Scott Hutchinson, or a glimmering instrumental nuance. Simultaneously dark and enlightening, each song demonstrates the intricate genious of this band. I love this album. Buy it, you know you want to.

4.5 stars

Frightened Rabbit's previous album "The Midnight Organ fight" has attracted a fierce loyalty for its stunning songs of passion and heartbreak. It is one of the great British albums of the past decade bar none and showed that this Scottish band alongside other contemporaries like the Twilight Sad are bringing an awesome level of new energy to music north of the border.

The weight of expectation particularly after an album so loved is bound to be sky-high but more than that "TMOF" is a deeply personal record which the listener almost appropriates from the band and its great confessional songwriter Scott Hutchison. Are we therefore inevitably heading for dissapointment?

Hutchinson himself has stated that that the Winter of Mix Drinks is "less obviously personal and brutal than the last record" and I suspect that those looking for the ferocious lyrics combined with the gossamer tenderness of songs like "Poke" or "My Backwards Walk" may be disappointed. The Winter of Mixed Drinks (great title) is a much more expansive rock album; some have even called it a bid for stadium status. Whatever the case it marks a linear progression from "Midnight Organ Fight" into a much bigger sound and a new chapter for the band. This is achieved in this reviewers humble opinion without Frightened Rabbit losing those key characteristics that generate the passionate fan base and the rough edges which make this band such a joy.

The album gets off to a superb start with "Things". Waves of guitar roll out and then Hutchison's vocal kicks in. It is a big song that builds over four minutes into an anthem that will have the lighters waved in the air at festivals and will be superb show opener.

I'll keep this short and sweet. This album is magic, pure magic! It combines energy, great lyrics, catchy melodies, hooks and a real feel good feeling. It demands repeated plays - I must have have let it repeat 12 times whilst painting the ballustrades, and it simply gets better each time. Selfishly, I hope this band doesn't go global, but there's a great deal of potential locked up here.

A band to watch for sure. A 100% guaranteed gem - best indie album of 2010.

Format: Audio CD
It was always going to be tough following up such a widely acclaimed album as the Midnight Organ Fight (MOF). With the critical praise that release got it would have been easy for the band to fall into the sin of repetition and try to recreate MOF. With 'Mixed Drinks' they have avoided that pitfall and produced a record that's very, very different but still recognisable as a product that could only have come from Frightened Rabbit (the lyrics, soem of them cleverly even echo lyrics on MOF). MOF had moments of fabulous intensity in it's lyrics that sometimes seemed to me to break apart from the music they were that overpowering (witness the fabulous 'Poke'), on Mixed Drinks the vocals seem to me much more tied into the rest of the instrumentation. Just a personal view I guess, but to me it makes this sound much more the output of a band rather than the band backing Hutchison and because of this I think the album actually holds together more than MOF. Now that doesn't mean I think it's necessarily better, just different. In fact I think in some ways comparisons with what's gone before here are redundant because this is an altogether different beast to MOF.

The album is played with a great intensity from the beginning. There is a continuous wail of guitar all the way through that suggests comparisons with Glasvegas and also labelmates The Twilight Sad. (I like this in Scots bands - guitars as pipes? Or is that me being unbelievably trite....). The consistent attack of the music never lets up. Whereas on MOF there was a tremendous variety musically this is an album that weaves together much more from track to track. Gone is some of the belligerence in the lyrics and vocals of MOF ('Poke' and 'Keep Yourself Warm').

It's been a while waiting for the new Frabbit album but proved to be well worth it.
The sound is more polished and polite but none of the appeal has been lost and there are a couple of anthemic wonders.
I can only reccomend you go out and buy this album and if you can catch them live as they are a superb gig band.

Having the band recommended by a friend I thought I would check it out. I was, in no way prepared for just how brilliant this album. It is simple beautiful, right from the first track, the melancholy 'Things' straight through to the upbeat midsection of the album and until its climax this album is so damn worthy of your attention, a good set of headphones and your ears. Give it one try and I promise you'll love it. I rarely compliment an entire so highly but Frightened Rabbit have done it all right here
