Featured Frightened Rabbit stories

From star-studded guest lists to an audible influence on several generations of bands, Radiohead’s fan base has always included quite a few of their fellow rock stars. We polled dozens of notable musicians about their favorite Radiohead songs, and this is how they responded. More »

Frightened Rabbit is on a hot streak. Starting with September of last year and the State Hospital EP, then through the release of Pedestrian Verse in February, and finally last Tuesday with the Late March, Death March EP, the band has given us a succession of great releases in just under twelve months, consistently operating… More »

A few months ago, I wrote about the increasing influence of Mumford & Sons and how that band’s brand of bleeding-heart folk-rock represents the convergence of certain indie trends (howling Avett Brothers roots rock, bookish Decemberists folk-prog, humongous Arcade Fire stadium anthems, woodsy Fleet Foxes classic rock worship) with a long tradition of jammy and/or… More »

The second installment of Guilt By Association comes out in February. In case you don’t remember Vol. 1, the compilation featured contemporary indie bands covering so-called “guilty pleasures.” Of course, the problem with these sorts of things is that the “guilty pleasures” have generally written timeless classics that outshine the contemporary band’s not timeless oeuvre.

New Frightened Rabbit Video – “Head Rolls Off”

Most of what Frightened Rabbit do is fairly feel good, even when crafting Slaraffenland-esque art-damaged rockers or mellowly accessible, down-trodden indie rock cuts. The Glaswegians wear hearts-on-sleeves, so seeing them set the wholesome vibe of “Head Rolls Off” in an elementary school classroom is perfectly cute.

Holidays Are Times Of Magic, Free MP3s

Thank you, Jim Noir. Over the past few weeks, more and more bands have come to the holiday table with new, seasonally appropriate songs to help get festive. As would be expected, it’s definitely a mixed bag (stocking?), but there are a surprising amount of goodies as opposed to lumps of coal. We decided to… More »

New Frightened Rabbit Video – “The Greys”

Glaswegian trio Frightened Rabbit find themselves in an interesting slot, from a promo/buzz-building perspective anyway: They’re a damn fine band with immediate tunes that took off haphazardly on the back of a 1,000 run of their debut and no formal outreach/press push/touring plan in place. The result? Some scattered web buzz and a mini-jaunt acro… More »
