It’s Monday. There’s new music. Let’s get into it. This week we’re catching up with indie rockers, Frightened Rabbit, and their fifth album, Painting Of A Panic Attack. I’ve been a fan of this band ever since I heard The Twist, Keep Yourself Warm, and My Backwards Walk on, you guessed it, Chuck. As lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Scott Hutchison explains in the opening trailer, the band is inherently Scottish. Congrats, Scott. Nailed it. There’s something dark, something moody, and even something sexual about this album. Some of it lies waiting just beneath the skin so scratching too hard might unleash a torrent of blood and emotion. Some of it is as plain as the nose on your face.
As I’ve mentioned before, as much as I try to provide the entire album for your listening enjoyment, sometimes it’s just not possible. However, these playlists of abbreviated samples, behind-the-scenes looks, and live performances are just as good as you get a different take on the band and their creative process.
… who wants to be happy?
I do and music like this helps out.
