Frog Eyes: The Bloody Hand

The Bloody Hand

The Bloody HandI think this guy might be on drugs. Either that or he’s been invaded by the spirit of some drunk, angry freak of a man. This music could seriously kill a person. I could see my mom up and dying after listening to Frog Eyes. She would literally look at me with those eyes and say, “Why?” Why would I expose her to wailing and bellowing and noise? Sometimes artsy just goes too far, and I think this one pushed my personal boundaries of tolerance. There are certainly some “moments,” but I’m not willing to slog through song after song of discordant nonsense to get to a minute of swirling indie rock that I could find in way more abundance on twenty other records on my ipod. Next someone will have to explain early Sonic Youth and Tom Waits to me.
