The Twilight Sad is another Scottish indie rock band that have been getting alot of attention lately for their forthcoming sleeper single ‘I Became A Prostitute’ (due out Aug. 3rd), which will be followed by their sophomore album titled Forget The Night Ahead (to be released in the UK on Oct. 5th).

I know, you are sick of hearing me go on and on about Frightened Rabbit, but I promise I won't bring them up again for awhile!

What I love most about Frightened Rabbit is that they bring the most confrontational lyrics I've heard since The Mountain Goats. They've also gained comparisons (musically) to Idlewild, Counting Crows and Death Cab.

Frontman Scott Hutchison sings about how "You must be a masochist to love a modern leper on his last leg" on "Modern Leper" and how “You won't find love in a hole/ It takes more than fucking someone to keep yourself warm” on "Keep Yourself Warm". Both of these songs, as well as the two I'm posting below, are from their last album Midnight Organ Fight, do yourself a favor and pick it up.

Here's a couple of standouts...

"My Backwards Walk"

"Good Arms Vs Bad Arms"

Here's the video for "Heads Roll Off"...
