Frankie Rose – “Interstellar”

Frankie Rose
Today was by far the sunniest, warmest day of the year so far, and I spent it listening to Frankie Rose‘s new album, Interstellar. As much as I like the fuzzed out stylings of her past work, the electronic textures of cuts like the title track are mighty impressive too. Listen to the sweeping, climactic “Interstellar” below, and watch out for this album when it arrives on February 21 through Slumberland.

My one true love I’m waiting for

Heaven looks like this
When I posted the lead single from Frankie Rose & the Outs‘ self-titled debut a few months back, I hadn’t heard the disc. Now I have, and can confirm that it kicks righteous ass.

I plugged this album when I was on the September episode of The Hype Machine Radio Show. You can also go to Exclaim! to read my review.

Below, I’ve got the new single “Candy.” It’s a little more dreamy than the first single, and is an ode to all things sugary and sweet. I suppose it could be a love song, but I’m inclined to interpret this literally as a song about candy. Peppermints probably.

A long, long way from home

On the outs with Dum Dum Girls
Frankie Rose & the Outs are led by Frankie Rose (duh), the former drummer of Dum Gum Girls/Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts. As I wrote about yesterday for Exclaim!, the band will be releasing its self-titled debut later this year via Slumberland.

The first single is called “Little Brown Haired Girls.” If you’ve heard any of Rose’s previous bands or listened to her solo single, you probably won’t be too surprised by this hazy pop gem. This time around, her sound is a little more bleary than punkish, with a cocoon of reverb than smoothes the edges off of the distorted guitar that growls in the background.
