Vinyl love: Frightened Rabbit “Pedestrian verse”

(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)

Artist: Frightened Rabbit
Album Title: Pedestrian verse
Year released: 2013
Details: Gatefold

The skinny: So this blitz on Frightened Rabbit all started off last Monday when I posted about my recent purchase of the 10th anniversary pressing of the band’s second album, “The midnight organ fight”. Then on Thursday, I posted a bunch of pics I snapped while seeing them live at Osheaga in 2013 and while putting together that gallery, I decided to make a week of it, a kind of Frightened Rabbit remembrance celebration of sorts. To that end, here’s Frightened Rabbit’s fourth album: “Pedestrian verse”: the long player that got me into the band in the first place, and the one for which they were touring when I saw them live in 2013. This record is, according to Discogs, one of the most expensive albums in my collection, going for around 1000% more than I bought it for, if I were ever in the mood to sell it, which I can’t see happening. It’s a breakup record that just rips you up from the inside and gets you dancing on the outside.

Standout track: “The woodpile”

Yeah. I’m glad I grabbed it when I did. It hasn’t been repressed so the price on it is way up. I’m pretty sure I got it during a 2 for $25 sale back in the old HMV days.
