Editorial Reviews

We were all knocked out by the Frankie Rose and the Outs album in 2010; the effortlessness of its gorgeous girl-pop mantras, the intimate immensity of its Spector-esque walls of reverb, the beauty of a song sung sweetly over the most graceful two-chord vamps. But are we ready for the new Frankie Rose? Interstellar is a revelation, an album that floats free of its maker s history time spent with Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls and Crystal Stilts and offers the listener something strangely other, as alien as it is familiar, as compelling as it is enchanting. Talking with Rose about the record, it s clear she was itching for a new start. The first big indication: production by Le Chev, remixer supreme (for Lemonade, Narcisse, Passion Pit and Rose s own Candy ) and ensemble member of Fischerspooner, etc. I wanted [Interstellar] to be totally different, and I knew I had to work with someone who would lend fresh ideas.... I wanted to make a particular record and I knew Le Chev would be the one who could help me do it. So, gone is reverb as the holy route to pop-grandeur, scaling a wall of teenage tears, and in its place is the confident swagger of a singer and auteur building the simplest of pop moves into aching, full-blown melodramas, grabbing hold of an emotion and riding its darker waves. Had We Had It spins the sweetest sugar from chords that ascend into the firmament a heavenly, palatial blur. Gospel / Grace rumbles with passion, a New Order-esque one-finger guitar figure leading the listener into the depths mapped by the chorus. Apples for the Sun is breathtaking, with Rose singing out across a lone piano, before a glorious web of voice and organ pirouettes into the air, an arbor of pleasure connecting the verse with its instrumental shadow, a coda slowly slipping from view. A lot of Interstellar seems to be about disappearing into, or finding and reveling in, this kind of imaginary zone, something Rose confirms: The whole record is about dreaming of some other place. And as the audience drifts into the heartbreaking closer The Fall, which floats out to sea on a lunar-aquatic cello riff that s pure Arthur Russell, they re ready to conquer those other places, too, to let Rose guide them out of the album s spell and land them back in the sensual world, slightly altered, adrift and in awe.

If you're not familiar with Frankie Rose, let me fill you in: Brooklyn-based Frankie Rose was an original member of garage rock staples Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls before going out on her own in 2009. She released her first full length album under the name Frankie Rose and the Outs in 2010. She's dropped the Outs, and Frankie Rose is now in.

Frankie Rose's new album Interstellar starts with title track 'Interstellar'. It begins with ambient synths and Frankie singing in her best Elizabeth Fraser croon before the song kicks into an all out drum extravaganza, complete with reverbed guitar and thick analog synth strings. 'Know Me' is up next with a heavy early 80s sound, a sound which plays a big part on this great new record. Think Head on the Door-era Cure with Debbie Harry pushing Robert Smith off to the side. It's a great track that'll make you long for Juno synths and Factory Records heyday. 'Gospel/Grace' is yet another tapestry of 80s nuggets, with heavy reverbed synths and drums, but with a very organic feel to it. 'Daylight Sky' is a gem of a track. If New Order, The Motels and Gary Numan had gotten together for a weekend recording session on the lower east side in 1981, it might've sounded like this great song. 'Pair of Wings' begins like a nuanced Zombies track with Dolores O'Riordan taking vocal duties. It's a gem of a song, slowly building with synths and timpani till it wavers off into an emotional coda.

With so many artists, the retro game can be a sink or swim sort of situation. You can take the past and make it your own. Put a new spin on an old record, if you will. Or you can flail helplessly amongst vintage gear and out dated fashion. Frankie Rose does the former with Interstellar.

Interstellar has me feeling the way Antony Gonzalez (M83) or Jack Tatum (wild Nothing) did putting my prejudice against retro sounding music in a headlock, whilst delighting me with effervescent synths, warm, clean guitar tones, delicate drum machines and gossamer bass lines. Frankie's music sounds great inspite of the fact that it's heavily influenced by 80's synth/dream pop.

The Title track has been compared to The Cure's Plainsong with the synth explosions being the obvious point of reference but i think it's more playful and less overtly epic sounding, pulling you in opposed to flooring you. Know Me can't help be compared to the cocteau twins and the Sundays with the tender vocals, soothing guitar and light synths but it neatly sits along side those bands by pulling all these elements together seamlessly. Night Swim and Daylight Sky's enticingly New Orderesque bass and synths also sound great with Frankie's dreamy voice other the top of them. And there are even moments where this album sucessfully leaves 80's town, take the satie like piano in Apple's For The Sun, or the amiina like ambience to the opening of air Of Wings.

For those already familiar wih frankie Rose's former endeavours this album may sound a little too smooth, considering the vivian Girls or the crytsal Stilts would seldomly be described as pretty, tender or inviting. But even they'd be hard pressed to deny that Frankie's transition to a more accessible sound isn't anytihng but a convincing one and if she has disappointed the riot grrrls and the indie punks she should rest assured that a whole new demographic of listeners is sure to take her to their hearts.

OBSESSED!!! I can't say how much I love this album. Perfect party/atmosphere type music. Doesn't interfere with having a good time; only enhances. Frankie's voice is so ethereal and soothing that every song only helps to put you in a good mood. "Pair of Wings" is pretty much my fav track off the whole album. GET IT!!!

Very nice mellow album. I like to put it on while I am doing other things around the house as it makes nice background music to me.
