"A splattering of electronica infused drum 'n' bass folk/rock madness"

"Sandblasted yet beautiful folk-tinged ravetronica"

Frog Pocket is the recording name of John Charles Wilson, a Scottish musician. He is currently signed to Mike Paradinas' record label Planet Mu. He also runs his own record label, Mouthmoth. Wilson mixes elements of folk with electronica and often uses fast, noisy and complicated beats in his songs. His songs usually incorporate violin and guitar - often using harmonics.
