Frog Eyes Vs. Nardwuar the Human Serviette

Nardwuar the Human Serviette and Frog Eyes' Carey Mercer

Greetings from beautiful Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A.!!

As any fans or casual followers of Vancouver’s media personality Nardwuar the Human Serviette can tell you, his interviews are nothing if not thick with awkwardness. From Jay Z to Julian Casablancas, Nardwuar’s very peculiar style of interviewing has perplexed, annoyed and intrigued. But none so far have been so calm as Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer who joined Nardwuar via phone last week for a live-on-the-radio interview.

Carey’s Nardwuar interview is almost a meta-interview, cleverly toying with the banality of most interviews and dancing around any real discussion of ¬†Frog Eyes’ most excellent new longplayer Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph, which is now on shelves for your musical consumption. And throughout, Carey is inspiring in his patience and thoughtful replies.

That said, the whole interview can be quite delightful. We get lovely nuggets of information about British Columbia’s indie-rock history of which only musicians of that region may be aware. Also, at the tail end, we get to hear Carey and Nardwuar duet for the “Shave and Hair Cut” melody. Perfectly strange ending to a stranger interview.

Have a listen to Carey’s appearance on Nardwuar HERE.

In a few weeks, Frog Eyes will set off on a North American tour. Simply put, the Frog Eyes live experience is not to be missed. See the dates HERE.
