(ex- Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls)
Frankie Rose spent a few years kicking around the Brooklyn jangle-pop scene before striking out on her own: As the most charismatic member of Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, and Dum Dum Girls, she was a reliable bolt of onstage electricity enlivening the often noncommittal presences around her. It was pretty clear, even then, that she was eventually destined for bigger things.
Interstellar is a big, second-album leap of faith into deeper waters, a sparkling synth-pop record that wants to mean something to dreamy, hyper-emotional twentysomethings. For her model, she's taken the impression of some of the dreamiest, most hyper-emotional records of her youth. The production on Interstellar is gorgeous, and clearly modeled on the Cure's big, panoramic pop records, like Disintegration: booming-canyon drums, acres of spannable horizon...
Londons Dark pop trio Charleston bring together brooding drums, sawing synths and anthemic melodies to create a sound that is both haunting and uplifting. Their debut single launch party at Old Blue Last in february was packed to the rafters and we're excited to have them down to play for us.
