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.

Go to Exclaim! to read my previous story about the album.

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.

I won’t beg

I stole this from Time Out New York
As I wrote about a couple of days ago for Exclaim!, drummer Frankie Rose recently quit Dum Dum Girls. She’s previously been a member of both Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts. Who can cling to a ramblin’ Rose?

Here’s Frankie’s only officially-released solo single, “Thee Only One,” It came out last fall via Slumberland, and sounds more or less like what you’d expect from someone who has been a member of three fuzz pop bands. Get ready for a shitload of distortion, reverb and sugar-sweet harmonies.
