New Frog Eyes – “A Flower In A Glove”

Led by sagacious howler, songwriter, and occasional op-ed writer Carey Mercer, Frog Eyes are following 2007’s Tears Of The Valedictorian with Paul’s Tomb: A Triumph. We’ve only heard the collection’s 9-minute opener “A Flower In A Glove,” but so far … a triumph indeed. That said, like his Swan Lake bandmate Dan Bejar’s monumental “Bay Of Pigs” disco or his own Enemy Mine standout “Spanish Gold, 2044” (to choose a more recent Mercer composition), “A Flower” deserves repeat listens and plenty of unpacking. For starters, note the awesome build at 4:42 while you get to the bottom the song’s words, the album cover, etc.
