It's fitting that Frog Eyes intends for Violet Psalms to be their last album: it sounds like the end of the world. The Canadian band's eighth LP burns with an apocalyptic intensity that feels final and definitive, like some dire prophecy has come to pass. The group has long worked in a sinister vein, though rarely with such sharp-edged precision. These 10 songs are a study in musical dynamics, with ever-shifting instrumentation that leaves moments of brooding calm, and even silence, that are torn by spikes of guitar or swollen with eerie synthesizers, and then punctuated by Carey Mercer's voice.
