So back in June, I started listening to this song “Backwards Walk” by Frightened Rabbit that was on a Paste sampler. By August, I had become officially obsessed with it; thus its presence on my Dragon*Con mix.
Yet somehow I kept forgetting to check out anything else by this band. What is wrong with me? Then a week or two ago, I start, as is my usual December pasttime, reading through all the year-end lists so nicely compiled by Large-Hearted Boy. And I start seeing Frightened Rabbit everywhere… And I look at my iPod and wonder “Do I have anything by them? Why Yes. OH? THIS IS THEIR SONG!?!” And then they popped up on Heather’s (Fuel/Friends) year-end list and I knew I had to get my lazy butt in gear.
Frightened Rabbit “The Midnight Organ Fight” = best album of 2008 that I didn’t listen to until December. And I totally regret that. But at least I’m listening to it now. It’s REALLY good.
