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!!!

Frankie Rose just keeps getting better with every album. This is one of my favorite albums of 2012 in a dreamy pop-rock kind of style I never thought I would get so into until she came along. Listen to: Interstellar, Had we had it, Apples for the sun, and Moon in my mind...amazing music!!...
