Jeremy Enigk’s 1996 solo album Return of the Frog Queen is a mystical curio within the story of Seattle emo giants Sunny Day Real Estate. Recorded while Enigk was on hiatus from the band—in between their influential first two albums and expansive third—Frog Queen showcases the unique songs and voice of a talented musician working to find himself. The lyrics are spiritual and searching (Enigk had recently converted to Christianity) and the music is generally slow and quiet, but also lush and adventurous. He recorded with a 21-piece orchestra, experimented with an array of sounds, and leaned, as always, on his distinctive drone-folk-rock style, which is what made Sunny Day Real Estate not just a rock band, but something special. Twenty-two years later, Sub Pop has reissued Frog Queen in expanded form, and Enigk is touring with a full band, playing the whole record live.
