I was traveling over the weekend and a friend burned a copy of Winter of Mixed Drinks for me for my return trip home. I immediately loved the first song and proceeded to completely fall in love with this record over the next 8 hours of my road trip home yesterday. Best record of the year so far for me. "Things" and "Footshooter" were favorites from the get go but I actually love every song on it. I ran out and bought the CD today.

Nothing Like You and Living In Colour were my favorites on the first spin.

Sort of a weird record, where part of me is disappointed and the other part really enjoys it. Hopefully I'll be able to like it for what it is on future listens, rather than throw my expectations from the last album on it.

"Things" made me cry on the first listen. The wide open highway through the mountains of West Texas can do weird things to me and music.

I have to go back and listen to The Midnight Organ Fight some more. One of those records I liked but never totally got into for some reason.

You and I should get together some time.

Mission accomplished, I listened to it today for the first time in a few weeks and loved it. While I still don't really like any of the tracks as much as much as the highlights from the previous album, I like far more tracks than I did on the last one.

Apparently this has been out for over a week. Not sure if it's an "official" single or not.

Some how I came across Frightened Rabbit playing the first minute or so of Fake Empire in concert on Youtube while looking for Black Lips videos. I then came across them covering Death Cab For Cutie's Different Names For the Same Thing. Both were surprisingly good.

FYI, and stuff.

This album is pretty great on first at-work-with-only-one-headphone listen.

Frightened Rabbit - Full Performance (Live on KEXP) - YouTube

Glad to see State Hospital is on the new albuml, definitely one of my most listened to songs of last year. Looks like the album is only $7.99 for the CD on Amazon right now. Not sure if I should just buy it, or wait to hear it once on Spotify.
