About ‘Age of Gold’
‘There’s a little Sean Lennon in there, some classic old-fashioned-y pop. I’m just waiting for some Phil Spector Wall of Sound production to make it a classic.’

‘Singer/songwriter Stephen Frost (Zep Replica, pictured below, right) has released a brand new track, and it takes the listener through many surprises. What begins as a simple pop track with a Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood intro shifts to a more complicated arrangement. Snapping fingers join the piano before the song adds a little more punching percussion and jazzy piano accents. The whole song feels a little like a Paul McCartney song in a “Martha My Dear” sort of way. The song finally goes into a little salsa bit to close out the track. . . Keep your eyes and ears open for what’s next from Frost.’

‘. . . the lyrics do an incredible job capturing the transitory nature of getting to know someone, by mentioning the weather, the season, and by memorializing individual utterances . . . Before hearing this song, I don’t know that I’d given much thought to how the words that people speak to us on a daily basis appear and disappear, irreversibly altering your future with those people, while at the same time drifting off into oblivion, never to be heard again. . . It’s an incredible idea, and it reaffirms just how powerful music can be. We may not know everything that was said about Antonin Artaud, but a piece of that conversation will echo for all eternity. . . I suggest you go ahead and listen to “Age Of Gold” immediately. . . and join me in hoping that the time between now and when we hear another Stephen Frost track is as momentary as possible.’

About ‘Young Blood’
“…magnificent rendition by Stephen Frost. Frost recently has been writing music for theatre, but is now making his return to song writing. . . His cover of this gorgeous song does it great justice. Frost gives it a great blend of soft melodies and out of nowhere turns up the distortion and really kicks the song in to third gear.”

In “Artists to Keep an Eye on in 2011″ – “Stephen Frost recently moved back to Richmond after writing music for theater and is currently breaking back into the music scene. He recently formed the Led Zeppelin tribute band Led Zepplica and his cover of The Naked and Famous’ “Young Blood” was catchy as hell. He’s working on new material and it will be interesting to see what develops.”

“Cute cover of The Naked and Famous’ ‘Young Blood’. You know you’ve made it when an American indie kid covers your tune.”
