Frightened Rabbit tore through eight shows at SXSW last week, and were featured on the cover of The New York Times Art Section on March 22.
Here’s what “they’re” saying:
– USA Today, March 22, 2010
“It’s anthemic: U2-style marches, with tremolo guitars, or folk-rock fingerpicking that starts to chime, as well as arena-singalong refrains that go “Whoa-oh-oh.”
Yet Mr. Hutchison sings about loneliness and insecurity, with a
voice that’s shaky and smudged.”
– New York Times (New York, NY), March 18, 2010
“Delivered the best set of songs that I witnessed all week.”
– Omaha World-Herald (Omaha, NE), March 22, 2010
The group’s third LP, The Winter Of Mixed Drinks, released March 9 on FatCat Records, debuted at #78 on Billboard’s Top 200 and #14 on the Alternative Albums Chart. Meanwhile, the band’s current single, “Nothing Like You,” is currently the #1 alternative specialty single at MediaGuide and the album is #15 on the CMJ Top 200.
Just before heading to SXSW, lead Rabbit Scott Hutchison stopped by NPR’s “All Things Considered” to talk about the new record. Listen HERE
