Frog Eyes; Tears of the Valedictorian

It has been 5 years since the release of Frog Eyes first record The Bloody Hand. They have been listed as influences for such popular indie acts as Xui Xui and Wolf Parade (with whom they share a member, Spencer Krug). Krug sings (and I assume writes) some of the songs on this album and the rest are fronted by Carey Mercer (also of Swan Lake). Some of the Krug songs on the album could very well fit on to a Wolf Parade album and the whole record in general shows some of the same reverence for Modest Mouse although for the most part its wierder and more jumbled than anything Isaac Brock ever put out. The songs are very varied in sound, feeling and length (ranging from 1 minute to 9) making for a very interesting album which doesn't necessarily feel like an album as much as it does a really good collection of songs.
