Performer Notes
  • Signaling a return to simplicity in U.K. indie rock, Frightened Rabbit matured immeasurably between their first releases and 2008's THE MIDNIGHT ORGAN FIGHT, their second record for Fat Cat Records. With Peter Katis--who lent his Midas touch to Interpol and the National--at the production helm, THE MIDNIGHT ORGAN is a fresh guitar opus with lean and mean arrangements that highlight the primary strength of the Hutchinson brothers' songwriting: a gripping emotional directness that never verges on self-indulgence.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The world view is challenging and heart-felt, the playing deft, the conviction clear."

Magnet (p.106) - "The album's mid-tempo songs display Hutchinson's vocals to the fullest emotive effect....THE MIDNIGHT ORGAN FIGHT's bloodied-but-unbowed lyrics stand up to repeated listening even on the fastest cuts."

CMJ - "[T]he record reaches an uplifting emotional crescendo that nearly makes every emotional somersault worth enduring."

Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.45) - "With an urgency that recalls the best of Okkervil River or The Frames, Frightened RAbbit step into the cynic's ring with gloves on, hell-bent on delivering euphoric pop upper cuts and brilliant songwriting jabs."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n uplifting record of angular alt-folk....It gets right under the skin, Hutchison's songs performed with utter conviction."

Paste (magazine) (p.78) - "[T]his time, FRIGHTENED RABBIT favors major-key immediacy over melancholy inhibition....Few bands do so well making songs built for arenas sound like they also belong in bedrooms."

Clash (magazine) (p.108) - "Scott Hutchinson's affirming lyrics and plaintive voice manage to translate a wealth of emotion....It really gets under your skin."
