Today a company-wide trek across the East River was rewarded with a brilliant double dip of sessions with two of the finest bands one could ever hope to encounter. It's convenient then that the finely-penned, Scottish outfit Frightened Rabbit
and our own emotive locals, Augustines
, happen to be currently sharing a tour together. Before taking their act to a two night stand at NYC's Webster Hall, both bands dropped in on our takeover of funky, literary outpost, The Brooklyn Art Library. With the camera rolling we captured two divine acoustic performances. Frightened Rabbit belted out three cuts from their most recent album, Pedestrian Verse
, adorning simple chords with balmy bits of piano, a floor tom pounce, and singer Scott Hutchinson's patented, whiskey-barreled poetics. After a bit of conversation, the boys rolled out to sound check while their mates Augustines sneak peaked some string-snapping, new material from their forth-coming album. It's safe to say these are two sessions we can't wait to share a few weeks down the road. Until then, have a look at a few snaps from the sessions.
