fun fact
The best time for a person to buy shoes is in the afternoon. This is because the foot tends to swell a bit around this time.

Frogger Phrampton
Untitled (CD-R)

Frogger Phrampton is Mark, Asif and Jessica. Frogger Phrampton plays strange lo-fi semi-electronica with enough reverb on the vocals to make Galaxie 500 producer Kramer blush. Frogger Phrampton is a new type of lime flavored soda. Frogger Phrampton cannot be found in google just yet (not yet but just you wait after this review has been up for a week). Frogger Phrampton is a cross between Peter Frampton and the video game Frogger. Frogger Phrampton hails from Miami. Frogger Phrampton is an interstellar virus. All of these statements may or may not true... and you won't know if I'm pulling the wool over your eyes because there isn't any info yet on this kinda interesting CD-R I got in the mail, other than a contact email.

The voice, kinda Field Mice and Mark Kozelek. And strangely a bit like Jhohn from Elliott the Letter Ostrich. Has that wiggly lightheaded feel to it... and is that a girl or guy singing? The music ranges from shoegazey to acoustic strumming. The songs, mellow and depressed. Pick one. The songs are interesting, not revolutionary. But I dig it. I don't know the titles of any of the tracks, they aren't written down anywher. 8 tracks on this CD-R. Nice tunes.
