    Fenway Recording Sessions Presents: Frog Eyes / PS I Love You

    Victoria, British Columbia, quartet Frog Eyes are the antithesis of its quiet Canadian village. Utilizing the carnival atmosphere of Rain Dogs-era Tom Waits, the frenetic energy of vintage Cramps, and the diabolical scheming of pre-Murder Ballads Nick Cave, the post-punk collective created an atmosphere of psychedelic unease with its 2002 full-length debut, The Bloody Hand.

    Lead singer Carey Mercer, who mined similar territories in his previous group, Blue Pine, leads the indie rock ensemble, which also includes his wife, Melanie Campbell; Grayson Walker; and Michael Rak. In 2003, after the critical success of The Bloody Hand, the group released the enigmatic Golden River on the Animal World label, resulting in another flurry of raves and a newly minted fan base. They signed to Absolutely Kosher the following year and released their strongest record to date, the volatile and charismatic Folded Palm, as well as the lo-fi acoustic EP Ego Scriptor. Other records include Tears of the Valedictorian (2007) and Paul's Tomb: A Triumph (2010). In 2014, the band issued the appropriately titled Carey's Cold Spring, a nine-track collection of new material that reflected Mercer's recent throat cancer diagnosis, as well as the passing of his father.
