There are more than a few of us here at Dead Oceans who have been closely watching the career of FROG EYES since their first album surfaced many moons ago. We have been admirers and collectors of all things Frog Eyes for years, so when the opportunity to release their new album was presented to us, we did not hesitate. We are beyond pleased to be working with one of the finest, most dynamic bands making music today. And on April 27th we will be releasing Frog Eyes’ crowning achievement.
Three years in the making, Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph marks Frog Eyes’ thunderous, frantic, fiery return. This is a slow-brewed masterpiece that is unmistakably Frog Eyes, a new album that was very much worth the wait. On this point we feel unassailable: Frog Eyes keeps getting better and better.
This is an album with weight. It’s wrapped in a gauze of fuzz, but a fuzz that’s neither yesteryear nor painfully now. Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph is neither overly modern nor awkwardly vintage, and it contains a depth and bombast that’s not only absent in Frog Eyes’ previous work, it’s absent from most contemporary music.

We are pleased to share the mammoth opener from Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph. “A Flower in a Glove” encapsulates everything we love about Frog Eyes in just over nine minutes – an epic beginning to a monstrous album. Listen to “A Flower in a Glove” HERE.
