This is a review about debts of honour and all that. Midnight Organ Fight has been an album that has taken residency in this reviewers head and heart with a scary level of staying power. It's been "out" since April 2008 and no week that has passed in that time when it has pushed more recent releases into a poor second place. It was one of those albums which involved a titanic struggle at first with what appeared an album comprised of a couple of standout tracks and little else but an overwrought singer. Mea Culpa therefore since persistence has paid off and the rewards are rich. Frightened Rabbit are from Selkirk and sing in broad Caledonian accents. They consist of brothers Scott Hutchison (vocals, guitar), Grant Hutchison (drums, vocals), Billy Kennedy (guitar, keyboards, bass), Andy Monaghan (keyboards, guitar, bass) and Gordon Skene (various instruments).

Let us pause, since you are thinking immediately that this is the Proclaimers mark 2 aren't you? Actually the band owes more debts to the school of classic indie pop. Influences could be fellow countrymen James Yorkston, Kenny Anderson, Biffy Clyro and even some of the best bits of Snow Patrol, but more importantly are the traces which hark back to the Byrds, the Band, REM, Counting Crows and Elliot Smith. TMOF is the bands second album and finds them producing classic songs. They are honest, full of passion, brilliantly sung and will eventually soundtrack your life. FR are starting to take off in the States and building a committed UK following. Their new album "The Winter of Mixed Drinks" is due for release in March 2010 and should be a belter.

Following on just six months after their critically acclaimed, `Sing The Grey's' EP, The Midnight Organ Fight will hopefully see Frightened Rabbit making as much of a mark on the UK music scene as they have done back in their native Glasgow.

The bands unique twist of rough-edged, unpolished indie rock and heartfelt, warbling Scottish vocals are bound to win them fans as loose guitars jangle against a tight pulse as the excellent `Good Arms Vs Bad Arms' zips through a volley of percussion, before cascading into a triumphant lo-fi pop shuffle.

It is an album that delivers a homely charm, through fizzing backing tracks and small, poetic cinematic moments, all the time accompanied by drums, bass, guitar, and straightforward washes of keyboard. The arrangements, too, are linear and humble, often blending shaggy elements with rigid ones to create a sense of purposeful pace, as heard in `Old Old Fashioned' with its scratching violins and clatter of drumsticks at the end.

'The Midnight Organ' is a catchy, ragged ode to numbness that's belied by its impassioned delivery: Frightened Rabbit don't go to great lengths to sell disaffection - as `The Twist' or `My Backwards Walk' will show you, this is fun, unpretentious music at its finest. If you haven't heard Frightened Rabbit yet, make it your mission to do so, as you will soon discover selkirk's best-kept secret.

I'm going to keep this very simple...this is THE best album of 2008 - no question! I'm a big fan of guitar bands and buy lots of music (too much if I'm honest, maybe 6 albums a week) so trust me when I tell you that I know what I'm talking about!
Frightened Rabbit are a rare band - talented, passionate, interesting yet incredibly likeable. Some people may find some of their lyrics a little too dark (especially concerning the tracks 'The Modern Leper' and 'Poke') but Frightened Rabbit are much more than just slightly disturbing lyrics. I really can't think of a band to compare them to, and although Snow Patrol and Idlewild have a similar sound, both these bands are far more lightweight and 'fluffy' to deserve to be compared to F.R.
All I can do is urge you to take a chance on this criminally underated band! I suspect by the time their third album is released (in 2009?) they'll be seen as much more than the new small band they are at the min! Dive in and enjoy...

This is so far and away the best album of 2008 that it pains me just how little recognition Frightened Rabbit get. How this didn't get a Mercury nomination is completely beyond me.

I first heard Frightened Rabbit perform on the Gaelic language channel BBC Alba's Rapal Indie Rock show. It was enough to seek out more aural delights from the Scottish four piece.
Their Myspace page confirms suspicions that FR are a notch above most up and coming Indie bands. A first listen to 'The midnight organ feast' offers the final verdict. These Rabbits run !
There is an American tinge to their music. Part Counting Crows part The Shins. Heavily guitar laden with organs and a neat drum section bringing up the rear. The whole 14 track package unwraps seamlessly into a 4 star outing of which the single 'heads roll off' reveals itself as an absolute classic track which stands up alongside the best of the best.
Will Frightened Rabbit become a name in the game or remain a cultish underground ensemble ....only time will tell? Well worth a listen.
