Welcome Mister Goblin to the Spartan Family. New Album "Frog Poems" Out April 26th.

Welcome Mister Goblin to the Spartan family. We're thrilled to release the brilliant new album Frog Poems on April 26th. Listen to the brand new single "Goodnight Sun" everywhere you get music here and pre-order the album on limited edition LP / digital now.

When Sam Goblin’s post-punk operation, Two Inch Astronaut, disbanded it was an opportunity for reinvention. An opportunity to experiment. An opportunity to explore the idea of letting a lack of a unified sonic direction be the direction. Pulling from a kaleidoscopic array of influences spanning from the early 2000’s tongue-in-cheek storytelling traditions of bands of Pedro the Lion to the breezier and more fuzzed-out conventions of 90’s alternative bands like The Lemonheads, and even further into the post-hardcore leanings of bands like No Knife and Shiner, Mister Goblin's Frog Poems is unexpected, thoughtful, and idiosyncratic in all of the best ways. The band's resolution to fight the instinctual pull of cohesion and steer into less-familiar waters is what transforms Frog Poems from a casual listen to an active and dynamic journey. This boldness and willingness to pioneer is evident in the recording from note one, and the spirit of this approach is what will keep Frog Poems spinning on turntables long after its release date.
