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

"A bit of a masterpiece." - 7BitArcade

"Imagine the euphoric pop of Small Wonder getting caught in a time warp to the wild west with Modest Mouse’s ‘Satin in a Coffin’ and you just about scratch the surface." - DIY Mag

"Oh, god. Help me, words. Help me convey what a blessing Frog is." - Collapse Board

"A record whose sheer flood of ideas couldn't be denied...Irreverent, strange and just a little addictive." - CLASH

"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

"A solid reason for Frog to be your new favourite band - 8/10." - Shout4Music

"A perfectly melancholy subway ride..." - IMPOSE

"A splendid piece of work." - Gideon Coe (BBC 6 Music)

"Dreamy Americana soundscapes...Despite sounding ever-so-slightly menacing at points, it's deliciously sweet for the most part." - The Line of Best Fit

"Makes me grin so hard I think my face may actually split into two separate parts." - The 405

"Making you pine for romances you’ve never had...Perhaps the one unifying factor of the record is the degree of humanity upheld by each track present, the emotions and the experiences almost all universal - 4/5." - ARTROCKER

"Anyone who doesn’t get that enjoyment from it really is past saving" - Louder Than War

"Have you spent any of your time listening to Frog? No? Then prepare yourself for something quite special, something you’ll rush to share with your friends, hoping to be the coolest kid on the block..." - Austin Town Hall

"A frenzy of fast guitar licks and off-kilter vocals, but it all comes together to form an impressive force." - MAGNET Magazine

"Anyone who's heard even the tiniest excerpt from Kind of Blah will attest that, however they came to it, they've found a spark of magic from somewhere." - Crackle Feedback

"Frog are the most wonderful weirdos, and we should hold them close to our hearts forever." - Don't Need No Melody

"Peek through a smeared window at an innocent and imaginary New York...the entire set feels like it exists outside of time...feels like a constant, noisy dawn..." - Clicky Clicky Music Blog

"Recorded under a derelict bowling alley, the album really does suck you into the New York that Frog know…‘I’m an adventurer’ is a line from the album and it’s a hell of a journey to join Frog on. An album that will have you an emotional mess at one moment and hopping for joy at the next…" - Spectral Nights

"Kind of Blah is America." - Wake the Deaf

"An LP you'll want to faun over and adore even when it confuses the hell out of you. The best artists never bare all on arrival and this is no different. Give it spin. And then another - until it makes sense - 8/10." - The Digital Fix

"Albums like this don't come around that often." - Independent Clauses

"It’s been a long, long time since a lo-fi recording has hit me as powerfully as frog’s 'Kind of Blah'...It’s tough to even begin speaking about this album because it subtly steals the words out of my mouth by taking my breath completely away." - Sly Vinyl

"Love this." - Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1)

"Kind of Blah is an album that speaks to many, and it will speak to you if you give it a chance. There's a honesty and humanity at its core and Frog pull shimmers of beauty through music that is sad, painful and desperately catchy." - Scene Point Blank

"Here, frog has crafted something truly different, uniquely flawed, and indisputably special. And that’s kind of awesome - 4/5." - Sputnik

Track Name: Photograph (Single Version)
guitar fell out of time, missed you when you were mine
snowflake auld lang syne wept from the 7 line
thought bout something you said in '02 and slept on the tarmac
o, got a text from you out the blue well whatcha call that

it’s just a photograph
you catch her mid laugh
it’s just a furtive stab
into the curtained past
cus in the photographs
you lit a bogue then ashed
into the water splash
and batted long black lashes 'to the camera flash

1979 asian children crying
nixon had resigned and the pretty fathers pined
for days spent grillin dr pibb out in the guard shack
mrs hansen will you take me till death do and all that

it’s just a photograph
you catch her mid laugh
it’s just a furtive stab
into the curtained past
cus in the photographs
the kings of queens yelped brash
and ordered guinness drafts
and she smiled then laughed ordered something on my tab

countless boroughs filled with bars all that matters is the scars doc is criminal as charged burn your tongue its metal forks burn the young its metaphors burn your skin its agent orange, apples sprinkled in the porridge
I don't know where you are, daddy loan me your car baby where did you park, darkened parking garage, babe what happened to us, long pained look where’s the trust, gets tinged up with the lust, zipper down then you fuck just then a passing truck
Track Name: Chicka Cherry Cola
capillaries and doctors ‘fore you pick up your son
hide your smoke out the window park it on the lawn
all your brothers on couches watchin’ charles in charge
your dad kicks them out the house, they whistle, call him sarge
he hides in the garage

back behind your mother
snapple in the cupboard
oo cowards hide in cars from exes and the guards
and spill over at bars to boys with big guitars
‘cause all the boulevards of their youth melt into shards of chicka cherry cola

capillaries and ovaries cryin to dances with wolves
your finger hovers over his number and it gives you chills
goin’ through the bills
just then a sudden reaction need your satisfaction but you know what's next and you come from a texan home and you feel so alone feel too alone and you picture him home and its
back behind your mother
snapple in the cupboard
oo cowards hide in cars from exes and the guards
and spill over at bars to all the boulevards
and all the little broads that lean over the cars of chicka cherry cola

pick up the phone and dial be the 75th caller
name the top five songs and you win a dollar

back behind your mother
snapple in the cupboard
oo cowards hide in cars from exes and the guards
and spill over at bars to boys with big guitars
‘cause all the boulevards of their youth melt into shards of chicka cherry cola

chicka cherry col- now we’re older
chicka cherry col- now we’re old
