After "For electronics and birds" the album "Frogs" is the second in Grundik + Slava's fauna series. As the title presumes, all the music is dedicated to frogs. The titles of the songs enhance this presumption even more. As on it's predesessor "For electronics and birds" the electronic music is amplified by sound of nature on the eternal quest towards the ideal sound.
The electronic music of Grundik + Slava always been defined by orginality and "Frogs" can't be anything else but again a real gem. The natural sound of frogs, birds and the rainforest combined with the experimental electronica gives the listener enough impact to wish there actually are raindrops falling on your head. A refreshing shower would lighten up the music even more, but even without there is enough life to be seated inside.
On "Frogs" Grundik + Slava choose to be accompanied by the female singer Victoria Hanna. With her frail but very beautiful voice she can be heared on many songs. This creates an extra soundlayer with give the idea of the fauna in the music an even greater edge. One doesn't feel love for frogs to find the gem in this album. For the lover of experimental electronica this is an absolute musthave.
Grundik + Slava are pioneers on the erea of israelic/american electronic music and "Frogs" shows they still reside at the top. The joint release between Auris Media Records and Thophet Prophet made it possible this gem could be released.
