Title: Kind of Blah
Record Company: Audio Antihero
Frog’s album Kind of Blah opens with eerie long tones that gradually become music. Just like this beginning the entire album creates an effect of lulling your mind into an odd, but persistent trance. Each song drags you deeper into the soundscape of gentle through though high-pitched voice; and guitars being scratched like you would a cat behind its ears.
Alongside the music we catch glimpses of ambulance sirens, distant shouts and other ambient sounds which frequently serve to ground the music in some kind of alien version of reality.
Overall this album is perfect for relaxing or painting to on a quiet afternoon. It has an atmosphere reminiscent of child drawn from equal parts Coldplay and Radiohead; but also exists way beyond this comparison.
