Can anyone convince me?
Then you'll like Frightened Rabbit. Genuinely surprised by the amount of people into that band. Brain rot.

Frightened Rabbit - The Twist
and my dad.
You can probably get Midnight Organ Fight for under a fiver and that'll tell you all you need to know.
they had a good album once
Thought they'd be worth checking out at EOTR as line up is pretty crap at the moment.
Dinosaur JR, Jens Lekman, Efterklang, Polica, Matthew E White, Caitlin Rose, Allow Darlin, Cass Mccombs. Check those out if you haven't
the are lots I don't
You need to listen to John Murry. You may also enjoy the Leisure Society and Savages and King Khan. I agree with most of your recommendations. Lot of good bands on the EoTR lineup.
Except that Frightened Rabbit are excellent, IMHO.
'Feel i should be getting into Frightened Rabbit' - what a weird thing to say. Listen to them. If you like them, then 'get into them'. If not, don't bother.
Very very weird thread.
Should never force yourself to get into a band because others like them. And for the record I think FR are a very good band with one classic album.
Gothic Theater, Denver........I'll be there :)
has some very good tracks, but one of those bands you can get the measure of quickly and don't need to hear too much of. Don't really listen to much of them anymore apart from tracks mentioned from Midnight Organ Fight, but "i hate when i feel like this, but I never hated you" gets me every fucking time somehow.
Top tracks: "I Feel Better" (my song of 2008), "The Twist" and "Keep Yourself Warm".
The rest you can comfortably ignore.
& pedestrian verse are also well worth a listen
not understanding all the negativity towards them itt
The backlash seems to be in full swing now.
For what it's worth, here's my input.
Sing The Greys - Great
Midnight Organ Fight - All time favourite album contender, a classic.
The Winter of Mixed Drinks - Production lets it down a bit but there's still some really good songs on there.
Pedestrian Verse - Favourite album of this year so far
