New Frog Eyes Video, New York Date

One of the more memorable rock moments of the last couple of years for me was catching Frog Eyes open for Wolf Parade at the Wiltern. Late to the advent of their existence, I had nary an inkling what to expect. Their barely-contained chaos and Carey Mercer’s voice–oh, that voice–thoroughly confounded me. Perhaps even frightened me a little. Whichever, it was in a good way. I suspect I still don’t get all there is to be gotten with these kids, but there’s no denying they are one of the more singular acts out there, Canadian or otherwise. This new video for “Idle Songs” from Tears of the Valedictorian looks like it cost -$6.00 to make, is incomprehensible and yet, somehow, perfect.
