FRANKIE ROSE

Brooklyn musician Frankie Rose took her fingers out of all the pots they were in (Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, etc), sloughed about six layers of reverb off her super-scuzzy modus operandi, and recorded a new solo album, Interstellar. You’ve heard some of the new-wavey, almost glam cuts she’s teased from that so far, but the just-released title track takes the cake, because it sounds like its title – as otherworldly as it is massive, almost futuristically clean and polished compared to her back catalog. But don’t take all those clean synth planes and shoegaze-y vocals to be the mark of a glo-fi turn – Rose hasn’t lost any of her skill for lo-fi, helter-skelter pop songwriting. Interstellar is out February 21.
