The release I think I'm most excited about during the first half of the year has to be Frog Eyes', Tears of the Valedictorian, out on Absolutely Kosher Records. They will be releasing the album on both cd and lp formats and is set to hit stores May 1st. If you are the true fan, I suggest a pre-order, in which not only will you get the album one month before street, you also will get a t-shirt. Now who doesn't like t-shirts.
From what I've heard of this album, it should be their finest moment. We have to thank the guys at Daytrotter.com for posting three tracks the band did last year, one of them being the track Bushels from Tears.... The lp version and the Daytrotter live version of Bushels are both listed below for your pleasure.
An interview with pitchfork can be read here and just a reminder folks, Frog Eyes will be touring the album and gracing North Carolina May 15th and Local 506. A show not to be missed!
