frog eyes The Golden River (CD, £11.25)label: Absolutely Kosher
Forming out of the ashes BLUE PINE, key members have reformed taking their unique swirling, stumbling sound and dragging it into darker, dramatic territory with this incarnation. These guys tread into the same drowning waters as Nick Cave, Crime, Captain Beefheart and the Rock*A*Teens. Here are oddly paced scream and echo ballads with a burlesque, cabaret/carnival quality. Imagine Interpol melodies eerily pumped thorugh a speaker in the same room where Destroyer covers Danielson Familie songs.
