I need to bump this. I've fallen in love with this album again. Every single fucking song is perfect. Easily the best of 08, if not one of the best this decade. Just so, so good. My Backwards Walk, Fast Blood, Poke, Old Old Fashioned, The Twist, Good Arms vs Bad Arms... argh! So good.

"Poke" is beyond brilliant. Really, really is.

In a shameless bit of self-promotion, I'll point out that I managed to mention it, towards the end of my 2008 write-up:

Every so often, The Midnight Organ Fight takes me to this fucking, this place that I need to go sometimes. I hate going there, but it's fantastic in a self-medicating sort of way. Tonight is one of those nights. I hope the next time I have one of these nights I'll have learned more.

But: people, download this album. It is one of the best of the decade. Lyrically heartbreaking.

Wouldn't all of that make it worth actually buying?

I would also like to add that it must be the prettiest song to ever use the phrase 'kick its cunt in'

Absolutely, but I couldn't find it in any record stores near me, and I don't have a credit card.

I still spin parts of this record pretty regularly, but went through a span of a few months during which I never listened to any of these songs, earlier in the year. I was listening to some music before bed, about a month or so ago, and decided to give "Poke" another go. It has been ages since I wept during a song (puberty was a while ago, all of a sudden), but I wept during that one. Jesus. I don't know if that's a good thing, in and of itself, but it certainly was brought about by a better-than-good song. Amazing.

Couldn't even begin to choose a single highlight, but since I'm now listening and I just heard it, I'll go with "And now, we're unrelated and rid of all the shit we hated./But I hate when I feel like this, and I never hated you." That whole final verse is almost too much for me to bear, for some reason. The song's nearly too honest, a la "Pale Blue Eyes" (The Velvets). But it works.

Just found out these guys are playing at a small bar in Toronto on July 22. Tickets are $13.50. I should probably go see them then, right?

Glad you mentioned this, as I just looked and they're playing here as well. Not until Sept. though.


Edit: Looks like it's the day after U2 weekend in Chicago. Not even sure if I'll be home yet, and if I am, I'm doubting I'll be wanting to go to another show. Bummer.

I suppose I should make a new thread, but I'm not in the mood. Anyway, you can stream the new Frightened Rabbit single from the upcoming album and its b-side here:
