Frog Eyes 7 inch

I saw frog eyes with sunset rubdown, Spencer introduced the band and then would say "I'm the wolf parade guy.", very sarcastically. It was an amazing practically rock opera, I was in awe, the place was tiny, but deserved an arean with a laser show. I didn't mind going deaf, or even notice. This is an amazing find for $4.
Soft Abuse is practically down the street on Bergen street in Brooklyn, so I got this 7 inch in literally one day, very awesome. I haven't had time to listen to it yet.
I'm beginning to really like the sunset rubdown stuff more and more, it's like a whole new wolf parade catalog to get through.

Frog Eyes
The Emboldened Navigator EP
Four songs from Frog Eyes' archives, brought to light by Soft Abuse. These recordings are amongst the earliest recorded by the band, and are decidedly more 'punk' than anything else they've done. Strangley enough, these songs are most indicative of their scorching live performances. All of the best elements of The Fall, The Birthday Party and Tom Waits have collided to create something wholly unique and mesmerizing.
7" $4 ppd (SAB 001)
Soft Abuse, 2002 (edition of 500)
