“Don't tell Minneapolis band the Fattenin' Frogs it's 2013; it would be a shame to break their hearts that the '60s folk movement has passed. Yet, that is exactly where their sound lives. The band's new single "Comin' Home" draws from the never-ending momentum of the banjo as much as the wistful sound of lead singer Chris Holm's voice. The drive doesn't allow the song to drift into mindless self-indulgence, leaving a song that taut and heartfelt, a blissful bridging of the generation gap.”

“The Fattenin' Frogs, led by the 4onthefloor's Chris Holm, injected plenty of soul and roots into the 'Mats material, augmented by the elegant voices of the three female backup singers. "I Will Dare" took on an extra bounce, while "Take Me to the Hospital" and "Bundle Up" were both drenched in an upbeat, dusty Americana sound...”
