Frog Eyes

Victoria, British Columbia quartet Frog Eyes are the antithesis of their quiet Canadian city. Utilizing the carnival atmosphere of Rain Dogs-era Tom Waits, the frenetic energy of vintage Cramps, and the diabolical scheming of pre-Murder Ballads Nick Cave, the post-punk collective created an atmosphere of psychedelic unease with their 2002 full-length debut, The Bloody Hand. Lead singer Carey Mercer, who mined similar territories in his previous group, Blue Pine, leads the indie rock ensemble, which also includes his wife Melanie Campbell, Grayson Walker, and Michael Rak. In 2003, after the critical success of Hand, the group released the enigmatic Golden River on the Animal World label, resulting in another flurry of raves and a newly minted fan base. They signed to Absolutely Kosher the following year and released their strongest record to date, the volatile and charismatic Folded Palm, as well as the lo-fi acoustic EP Ego Scriptor. The year 2006 saw the release of Bloody Hand, again on Absolutely Kosher, followed by Tears of the Valedictorian in 2007 and Paul's Tomb: A Triumph in 2010. In 2014 the band issued the appropriately titled Carey's Cold Spring, a nine-track collection of new material that reflected Mercer's recent throat cancer diagnosis, as well as the death of his father. Mercer also dealt with his father's passing on Frog Eyes' 2015 album Pickpocket's Locket, which featured ten songs he wrote on a Martin D-18 guitar left to him by his dad. The album also debuted a new lineup of Frog Eyes, with Mercer and Campbell joined by pianist Shyla Seller and bassist Terri Upton. ~ James Christopher Monger

Tears of the Valedictoria n is one of my all-time favorite albums. Can't beat Bushels. One of my favorite bands to introduce people to, you can never tell whether they'll hate it, love it, or pretend to like it but secretly think I'm insane for loving them.

wow some people leave dumb comments, doesn't sound at all like arcade fire, i don't even think of interpol when listening to frog eyes, frog eyes live in their own universe, nothing comes close in comparison to carey mercer's lyrics, maybe spencer krug, but then again they did work together LOL, and the drumming on earlier frog eyes albums, ahhh machine gun blasts here and there lovely, frog eyes are the poop or the trendy phrase an acquired taste, whatever, all i know is nothing comes close

Bushels is one of my all time favorite songs. A cross between Nick Cave, Soul Coughing, and Modest Mouse.

Please check out "tears of the valedictoria n " . You wont regret it.
