To be fair, this music is far more vital than anything Dave Grohl has pinched out recently, and "That Golden Rule" in particular makes fine use of orchestral pomp in rock circumstances. The slight brogue and pop emotion-powered hooks beg the question: Is this what Frightened Rabbit would sound like scrubbed up?

Moving Mountains and Ease the Medic open Friday's show at The Basement.
