Frog Eyes’ “Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph” Out Today

DOC019The latest LP from Frog Eyes hits stores today! Click HERE to buy Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph on CD or LP. Here are some of the things reviewers have to say about the album:

“A furiously lobbed Molotov cocktail of well-read rock…Frog Eyes deliver the only noise acceptable: howling voices, waves of super-fuzz, swirling riffs that are always tantalisingly out of grasp. 8/10″ – NME

“Shattered fragments of classic psychedelia and the bits of Springsteen riffs that their countrymen Arcade Fire left behind. 3.5/5 Stars.”  – SPIN

“‘ [Songs] ‘Violent Psalms’ and ‘Paul’s Tomb’ pair up in one of Frog Eyes’ most exciting and distinct moments yet: a final act that goes from creepy-solemn to a desperate, heaving crash.” – A.V. CLUB

Also, in celebration of release day, Largehearted Boy posted a new Note Books entry featuring Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer, where Mercer talks about the books he read during the creation of Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph. “I am not really interested in ideas or authors or novels in themselves; what I am interested in is the cables of similarities that stretch between poles,” he writes. “Thus, all of our expression might be seen as a glittering bridge, stretching between that which we experience and that which we wish to remember—the life of the body, the ‘lived life,’ bridging into the life of the mind. This bridge is the one true wonder of the world.” Read the full entry HERE.

Finally, in other Carey Mercer literary news, read a poem he shared on Said the Gramophone HERE. He also shares a couple of his favorite tunes.


Today you can bring WHITE HINTERLAND’S Kairos into your own home on CD or LP! The latest from Casey Dienel and Shawn Creeden is now available at your favorite local record shop or via Dead Oceans mail order HERE.

Appropriately enough, Stereogum premiered the album’s first video today with “Amsterdam.” Watch the animated video by Michaela Copikova below.

JOHN VANDERSLICE’S Romanian Names Available Today

Today, JOHN VANDERSLICE’S most excellent Romanian Names hits record store shelves and digital distributors of music the worldwide. Go get you some. Order Romanian Names HERE.

In a solid Pitchfork review today, writer Joe Tangari said the following of Romanian Names: “There are plenty more moments to enjoy on Romanian Names, from the bounce of “C&O Canal” to the electro campfire sing-along of “D.I.A.L.O.”, the slow back-to-nature majesty of “Too Much Time” and the lonely cello that closes the album. Vanderslice hasn’t made a bad record, but he’s only made a couple that are this good. If you’ve never dipped an ear into his world before, Romanian Names is a great place to do it.”

On Friday at 2 p.m., John will appear live on Seattle’s KEXP and give a special in-store performance later on Friday at East Street. Listen to the KEXP session on Friday by going HERE. And find out more about the East Street In-Store HERE.
