Broken Social Scene have proven that indie pop doesn't have to sound like four sad dudes navigating their Jetta through a bog. It can actually be celebratory and joyous. Now, Frightened Rabbit don't really sound like B.S.S. But on their second full length, the Glasgow quartet mines the past 20 years of British indie -- everything from the Vaselines and the La's to Coldplay -- for a brand of anthemic pop that utilizes trad-folk and skiffle rhythms (not post-punk grooves) to make them kids dance.
