Scotland's Frightened Rabbit are indeed a terror, having titled their Steinbeck-esque third album The Winter of Mixed Drinks, with brass-tinged singles instructing the depressed and depraved to "Swim Until You Can't See Land." Flushed with anthemic choruses and a subtle shoegaze gloss over their bombastic brand of self-loathing (tonight's group sing-along will be to the blistering track "The Loneliness & the Scream"), re-imagine the Arcade Fire as pale Scottish mopesters who've given up on everything but their guitars. With Maps and Atlases.
