Frightened Rabbit

Hard at work on their fourth studio album (and first for major label Atlantic), Scotland’s Frightened Rabbit have – over the years – grown from indie outsiders to major contenders with sheer grace and ease. Helped massively by frontman Scott Hutchison’s auto biographical songs of love, loss and self-loathing set against stadium sized hooks – the band recently returned to critical glory with the release of the State Hospital EP, a teaser of what’s to come from the group’s 2013 Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Grace Jones) produced long-player.

Frightened Rabbit play Birmingham, Brighton and London next Spring. Tickets are available now. Listen to the classic ‘Old Old Fashioned’ from 2008’s Midnight Organ Fight album below.

Kendrick Lemar

Easily one of the most talked about hip hop artists of 2012, Dr Dre’s latest protégé Kendrick Lemar released his major label good kid, m.A.A.d city only last month and has since resulted in a massive commercial cross-over, akin to the success of Drake’s Take Care from last year. Originally announced to perform at the indigO2 in January next year, the show was quickly upgraded to the Hammersmith Apollo due to massive public demand.

See what all the fuss is about below, listen to current single ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’. Pick up Kendrick Lemar tickets over on Eventim now.

FIDLAR

Proof that punk rock can still be relevant and exciting, LA’s FIDLAR are the latest additions to the Wichita Recordings stable of artists and showcase a primal and thrilling rollercoaster ride of chaos. A ‘three chords and the truth’ mentality belies the group, yet upon repeated listening, a depth to the music emerges that makes it both highly rewarding and fun.

Check out this fabulous quartet below. Like what you hear? Get yourself down to London’s Dingwalls in December for a super intimate show. FIDLAR tickets are available now from Eventim
