in general, pretty bloody awful?
are some good odd ball pop songs buried amongst the medievil weirdness. Good indie rock
is virtually unlistenable.
virtually unlistenable I imagine you'd really hate their earlier stuff! What about that song 'Evil Energy the Ill Twin Of...'? Is close to Pixies good circa outro in No.13 Baby.
is along the same songwriting lines but generally rawer and more idiosyncratic, and contrary to your outlook on the progression of bands, there are actually some bands that grow weirder and 'less listenable' to certain people with age, i.e. Radiohead circa Kid A compared to the Bends
and I *think* he plays on Tears.. but am not certain
frog eyes are in another band together called Swan Lake, that is a pretty good record worth checking out.
I really wouldn't say they are bloody awful.
Bushells is a pretty awesome song
albums. It's sitting on itunes.
I haven't listened to it again because it was so unappealing the first time.
Briliiant album, TofV is pretty damn good too!
and it's not too bad. He sounds quite like a zanier David Bowie.
= one of the best songs of the decade. The rest of their output is a bit variable, but I think Carey Mercer's vocals are generally excellent.
The Golden River.
Russian Berries But You're Quiet Tonight is also one of the best songs EVER.
Frog Eyes have never released a truly great album, true, probably never will do, but a) The Golden River comes close and b)in terms of individual songs, they have so many amazing ones, such as:
- Sound Travels From The Snow To The Dark
- Silence But For The Gentle Tinkling Of The Flowing Creek
- One In Six Children Will Flee In Boats
- The Fence Feels Its Post
- The Akhian Press
out of all the bands connected to krug they are easily the best
seriously, WHAT THE FUCK??? i was expecting "pretty fucking awesome is frog eyezzz!!111" to be the general gist of this thread but you failed :(
god, they're such a great band.
reform the countryside and bushels are two of the best songs of like ever.
Is an amazing song, does anyone else think it sounds a touch like Meatloaf?
it's so dramatic.
the wheatwheatwheat's gotgot toooooo lasttt. i love that shit.
