Have you spent any of your time listening to Frog? No? Then prepare yourself for something quite special, something you’ll rush to share with your friends, hoping to be the coolest kid on the block. This new single from their upcoming album, Kind of Blah, is a number that builds layer upon layer, working first with vocals, then adding and adding until listeners are carried away by the power of song. This is one of those tunes that erases the world around you, leaving you to find yourself at one with the song before you. Look for the band’s album to hit on May 25th via Audio Antihero.
Frog are an NY duo, and this song is weird as hell, so naturally I love it. “Judy Garland,” the track below, combines just about every genre you could imagine in one whirlwind song. It begins with rambling banjo and hillbilly folksy vocals, then somehow winds its way up to a synth-pop jam? Who knows how, but it’s purely magical. If you like this track, good news for you is that Frog is coming out with an LP, King of Blah which you can preorder here. Get to jammin’.
