 Spencer Krug's other band is called Wolf Parade. Wolf Eyes is a very different sort of band, also on Sub Pop.

 If you are going to mention Wolf Parade and Destroyer than Sunset Rubdown should also have been referenced. Regardless, I agree with some of your complaints with the band but with all do respect I don't think these releases were ever really intended to be listened to side-by-side for over 2 hours at a time. Say a swordfishtrombones and Rain Dogs re-release surfaced with 14 bonus tracks between the two; would you honestly be able to sit down and listen to both albums side by side for over 2 and a half hours and not feel tired or overwhelmed by all the ideas and chaos tossed around? Furthermore thats not even considering that we have had two decades to digest Waits' music where as its only 5 years since Frog Eyes conception with as many albums to show for it. I guess my point is that Frog Eyes is what it is and I don't think you can really fault a band or their albums if you over-saturate yourself with their music. Also, oddly enough I feel the Folded Palm is an amazing record with numerous great pop/psych moments and is ultimately better than the Bloody Hand.

 I agree, The Folded Palm is their best work so far.
