God Once Loved a Woman (free) 03:35
God once loved a woman Her features soft and German And one day after sermon God followed her home across the George Washington Where her blouse caught the sun and her eyes lit up like she recognized someone Her son ran passed the window He reached through the thin smoke and touched the yellow glass Through the cold burning past Now all the boneyards tremble with her name He felt her in him growing He wanted her to know him So when it started snowing God spoke to her from  The Path train platform The ground it shook rats ran in swarms And scratched and clawed and through the fog there rose a form He said you are the most beautiful thing that I made And he watched her face twist and melt towards the shade Now all the boneyards tremble with her name Something’s there you don’t care its unfair it’s a drain still clogged up with her hair Don’t you get the concept you ain’t slept it’s a dorm where her things were once kept

Previous Press for Frog:
"A safer bet there’s never been – this record is essential." - GoldFlakePaint

"...contains lines of total sincerity that feel disarming in the face of what has come before, as though the truth of things slips out in quiet whispers to oneself, the party over and room emptied out. The truth being the soul-shearing reality of the American Dream, the tragicomedy of understanding your dreams and desires to be complete fictions while leaning on them with all of your weight." - Various Small Flames

"Utterly brilliant...they make you nostalgic for memories you never had and take you back to places you’ve never before been." - London In Stereo

"Alive with tales of sadness, hysteria, and delusions, which is pretty much everyday America. Though the narratives are ambiguous and chimerical, each feel personal and poignant. With Whatever We Probably Already Had It, the cult of Frog will only get bigger." - Cereal & Sounds

“ of the most emotionally gripping tracks we’ve heard this year." - The Grey Estates

"It will makes fans of Jeff Rosenstock listeners, but also has a distinct indie vibe that reminds me of my favorite things about Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin or Los Campesinos." - The Alternative

"Frog continue to exist outside of musical fads and trends, a welcome moment of quiet contemplation in the sometimes hectic modern world, a subtle, stunning triumph." - For the Rabbits
