Album Of The Week: Beverly Careers

I won’t lie: This was a rough week. Some weeks are rough because there are so many great albums that, when I pick one, I’m doing a disservice to all the others. And then some weeks are rough because there’s just nothing going on. This is one of those weeks. We haven’t seen a release… More »

Beverly – “Planet Birthday”

“Planet Birthday” is the latest from Frankie Rose and Drew Citron’s debut album as Beverly, Careers. The song presents a breathy yet aggressive take on shoegaze — more nightmare-pop than dream-pop, if you will. Check it out below. More »

Beverly – “Honey Do” Video

Earlier this year, Frankie Rose took a break from her solo career and, along with Drew Citron, formed the indie-pop duo Beverly. They announced their existence to the world with an immaculate fuzz-pop single called “Honey Do,” and now they’ve made a video for that single. Director Hanly Banks has put together a series of… More »

Small Black – “Lines Of Latitude (Dave Harrington Remix)”

Guitarist Dave Harrington is Nicolas Jaar’s bandmate in the elegantly restrained electro-psych duo Darkside, and he may also be Jaar’s peer in creating woozily pretty minimal tick-tock remixes. Harrington has taken on “Lines Of Latitude,” a piece of dazed, lovesick synthpop from the Brooklyn band Small Black. The original appeared on the band’s Real PeopleMore »

Beverly – “You Can’t Get It Right”

Frankie Rose was an integral part of Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, and Dum Dum Girls, and last year put out a solo album that included an amazing cover of “Street Of Dreams” by the Damned. Now she’s working in the duo Beverly with Drew Citron. They’ve put out the single “Honey Do,” and now share… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Let’s take a moment for Dave Brockie, better known as Gwar’s Oderus Urungus, who died suddenly earlier this week. For decades, Brockie helped to pioneer a distinctly DIY music-video aesthetic. With no YouTube and no TV channels willing to play their videos, Gwar went full-on disgusting, turning every video into a mini-Evil Dead video and… More »

Small Black – “Real People” (Feat. Frankie Rose) Video

New York synthpoppers Small Black will release their new EP Real People next week, and the title track, like first single “Lines Of Latitude,” has backing vocals from fellow starry-eyed synthpopper Frankie Rose. The new “Real People” video, from director Nick Bentgen, doesn’t have any particular story, or at least it doesn’t have one that… More »

Small Black – “Lines Of Latitude” (Feat. Frankie Rose)

Last year, the Brooklyn synthpoppers Small Black released their album Limits Of Desire, one of the best and most underrated examples of giddy sunkissed New Order-style indie-bloop I’ve heard in recent years. The band will follow that album up with a new EP called Real People this spring, and its first single is “Lines Of… More »

Beverly – “Honey Do”

The former Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls member Frankie Rose has been releasing some wonderfully swoony indie-pop solo albums over the last few years, and now she’s half of a new duo called Beverly. The other half is Drew Citron, who plays in her live band and also in the New York band Avan Lava. More »

Frankie Rose – “Sorrow (Small Black Remix)”

Last month, the postpunk and garage-rock scene veteran Frankie Rose released Herein Wild, her third solo album and her second album of evocative, swirling new wave. And now, her fellow New York nostalgists Small Black have remixed her Herein Wild single “Sorrow,” building on its wafting beats and making it sound a whole lot more… More »

Watch Frankie Rose Play “Into Blue” On A NYC Rooftop

Yesterday, former Dum Dum Girls/Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts member Frankie Rose performed “Into Blue”, a song off of her forthcoming record Herein Wild, on a rooftop in Brooklyn. In the video of her performance, Rose discusses the writing and recording process behind Herein Wild, which apparently took place over a mere month and a half. According… More »

Stream Frankie Rose Herein Wild

Frankie Rose (formerly of Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls, and Vivian Girls) has been putting out some excellent singles in anticipation of her upcoming solo album Herein Wild.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

This week, we saw two bizarre-yet-totally sensical collabs from !!! with Main Attrakionz and Icona Pop and Zebra Katz, and they are talking points, for sure, indicative of how there are truly no longer any barriers to break when it comes to genre melds — that even the most bombastic performers can link up with… More »

Frankie Rose – “Street Of Dreams” (The Damned Cover)

Frankie Rose, the former Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls supporting player, went chiffon new wave on last year’s solo album Interstellar, and it was awesome. She’ll follow that one up next month with the new album Herein Wild, and the new one is sounding promising, too. We already posted the first single “Sorrow,” but the… More »

Frankie Rose – “Sorrow”

She’d already gone solo, but last year, the former Vivian Girls/Crystal Stilts/Dum Dum Girls supporting player Frankie Rose completely broke out and became her own thing, releasing the very enjoyable new wave album Interstellar. This fall, she’ll follow it up with a new one called Herein Wild. Its first single is “Sorrow,” which expands the… More »

Frankie Rose – “The Fall (Fort Romeau Remix)”

British dance producer Fort Romeau upends Frankie Rose’s Interstellar cut “The Fall,” turning it into a shuffling, percussive slab of dance music, one in which Frankie’s vocals are pushed even further back and coated with reverb. Download it below. More »

Frankie Rose – “Know Me” Video

The lush, lilting new-wave track “Know Me” is one of the highlights of Frankie Rose’s pretty-great Interstellar album, and its new video is an 80s-style sci-fi short with a whole lot of blue light and dry ice. In the video, Rose inhabits a future-world where everyone wears goggles that give them cool-kid versions of Terminator… More »

Frankie Rose – “Apples For The Sun (The Go! Team Remix)”

Frankie Rose – “Night Swim” Video

Frankie Rose’s extremely likable new-wave move Interstellar has already yielded one video, for “Gospel/Grace.” Now there’s another one, for the rippling, sighing “Night Swim,” and it takes the title a bit literally. In the clip, Rose goes for an after-dark dip and, as far as I can tell, gets attacked by a group of mermaid… More »
