Album of the Day

Fortunate Observer of Time, by Frogg Cafe (2005): Frogg Cafe is a really interesting band. They started off as a Zappa tribute band, before shifting into original material. As you might expect, there's quite a bit of Frank's influence in the band's sound, particularly in the arrangements and instrumentation (some nice tuned percussion, for example). But there's also some echolyn-like harmonies and a general jam band-style looseness to the tunes. Very distinctive and very cool.
