Mid­night Or­gan Fight Fat Cat Records

With all the en­ergy of the gen­tly an­themic Snow Pa­trol and the hazy touch of a less es­o­teric El­bow, Glaswe­gian trio Fright­ened Rab­bit are any­thing but quiv­er­ing bun­nies when it comes to mak­ing sin­cere, clear-headed rock tunes. With Peter Katis (In­ter­pol) pro­duc­ing, there are no songs here on hard-to-reach shelves – Back­wards Walk sim­ply tugs on your heart­strings, while The Mod­ern Leper cat­a­pults you through Hutchin­son’s cloudy alien­ation to­wards sunny pock­ets of pure blue sky. Mid­night Or­gan Fight harbours touch­ingly clever lyrics, dry wit (“My trousers seem to love your floor”) and fresh mu­sic served with love. Ac­ces­si­ble, gui­tar-driven indie doesn’t get much bet­ter. www.my space.com/ frightenedrab­bit Down­load Tracks: The Mod­ern Leper, Head Rolls Off, My Back­wards Walk
