Frankie Rose - Interstellar

On first listen, Interstellar, the new album from former Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls drummer Frankie Rose, sounds like a great leap forward — the moment Rose leaves behind ramshackle indie-pop and toward a more glimmering, expansive, lush take on her own tough-romantic style. We’ve already posted “Know Me,” “Night Swim,” and the album’s title track. And now the entire LP is streaming over at Spin.

Interstellar is out 2/21 on Slumberland.

  1. There’s no denying the immediate hook of “Know Me.” The rest of the album will take a few listens to figure out whether it’s a memorable work. I do definitely like the Arthur Russell-mode cello loop on the closing track.

    • I agree. I’ve only given the album a couple of run-throughs and I guess due to the early previews in “Know Me” and “Nightswim,” I was expecting the album to be an overall straight-forward hook-laden listen, but there are probably more tracks that swell up around you quietly. The key is turning the lights down low for this one.
