Coming off a sold-out show at the Fillmore, Glasgow’s Frightened Rabbit will be playing tonight, Thursday, May 20th at Downtown Brew. Surprisingly, there are still tickets left. With their newest album, Winter Of Mixed Drinks, Frightened Rabbit have made a tremendous leap forward with complex arrangements and song crafting that sounds familiar upon first listen. Tomorrow, they headline the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, so this is the perfect time to catch these rising stars. Maps + Atlas and Our Brother The Native will open the show.
Generous handclaps and a beautifully thrumming guitar buoy The Loneliness & The Scream. Living In Coulour, meanwhile, is a statement of intent, chiming pianos and a reeling rhythm pushing things along, typifying an album made by a band happily at the peak of its powers. – Mojo Magazine Mar 2010, p.90
