Frightened Rabbit, 'Sings the Greys' (FatCat)

7
Sings the Greys
Critical Mass
Label: FatCat

by Jon Young

Don't believe the name -- this fervent Scottish trio are anything but fearful, though they're seriously jumpy. Like a young Billy Bragg who's gulped a gallon of espresso, singer Scott Hutchison and crew play a crackling garage hybrid of punk and folk on their stimulating debut. The country blues-style "Behave!" finds Hutchison threatening to "make a mess on the stairs with my mouth"; on "Be Less Rude," he unleashes a heated diatribe, exclaiming, "You should be less rude / You don't know what it might do for ya," sticking up for victims of bad manners everywhere.
