Plaid-wearing, whisky-loving, bearded musician Scott Hutchison, the frontman for Scottish indie rock geniuses Frightened Rabbit, makes me swoon like no other. His lyrics are a simultaneous punch to the gut and commiserating hug that anyone who's had any kind of difficult, real-world adult relationship, or emotional wherewithal to live sensitively can relate to. On Tuesday Feb. 5, the band will release its fourth studio effort Pedestrian Verse, following the release last year of the State Hospital EP (which made our end of year album list, naturally).The album is currently up for streaming over at the Guardian, and we very much recommend you give it a listen.
