Frogtown is a new project between LA dudes Alex Koons and Sam Gabbard, two of the guys behind LexiconDon. They’ve posted a bunch of quality songs free for download on their SoundCloud, and ‘Strawberries’ is probably my favorite (‘Me For You’ & ‘Jersey Devil’ are also very good.) The vocals & lyrics give a sense of hopeless longing that everyone can relate to in some way or another. While the vocals really drive this song, that bass line and eerie guitar make it stand out as something a bit different – a little rock, a little pop, but overall just good music. Despite the lyrics, there’s still this feeling of optimism in the chorus, followed by a “fuck it all” ending that I totally appreciate. Put this on repeat and let it take you into the weekend.
