REVIEW: Frog’s “Kind Of Blah”

Frog photo Frog_cover_zpspptjqrbj.jpg Kind Of Blah (Audio Anti-Hero) is the kind of pop music that music fans would want to immerse themselves into on a regular basis, for it is a wonderful and balanced blend of pop and rock, with enough eclectic qualities that show they are not afraid to share a sense of humor because they may not take themselves too seriously. In other words, the guys of Frog aren’t here to share any level of snobbery and while the humor may be in the distance in most of their songs, that subtlety is very much present. You can say that their music fits alongside the likes of Brad, Weezer, Qui, and the Foo Fighters, bands where you can champion because they sound good but don’t mind laughing with because they expose that side of themselves without being ashamed. They seem to want to enjoy dipping in and out of different things within each songs, loving the aggression of hard rock and punk while throwing in new wave here, late 70’s pop there, synth pop way over there, and early 90’s alternative grooves without trying to cash in or try to be trendy. The music here is easily accessible but I say this because it’s accessible to me, someone who feels they are pop music traditonalists will throw flags and call this an abomination, but it’s not. This is the type of pop/rock craftiness that needs to be heard and hopefully more people discover their sounds, they will continue to make music like this, exploring and going beyond their limits, and become a force. I wish them well.
