Frog Eyes

The Canadian experimental rock outfit Frog Eyes makes foggy, distorted music, replete with crashing percussions and the occasional shimmering piano melody. Listening to last month’s Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph feels a bit like getting caught in a sudden turbulent rainstorm. The band’s fifth full-length is a heavy piece of work – epic, spacious-sounding indie rock on the scale of Wolf Parade (WP keyboardist Spencer Krug was a founding member of Frog Eyes), with frontman Carey Mercer’s distinctive voice piercing through the songs’ long stretches of instrumental breaks – kind of like a beacon in all that fog. With Plants & Animals, Lost in the Trees. ERIN K. THOMPSON
