Frankie Cosmos - Vessel
Originally a bedroom project of Greta Kline, Frankie Cosmos are unveiled as a full band for Vessel. We give them a hearty welcome, and offer some advice to our readers: Don't miss this one! Full (and by full, we mean 18 songs) of concise, perfectly formed earworms featuring Greta's girlish soprano and her wry lyricism. The arrangements are dynamic, and with a running time under 34 minutes for the entire album, each song stays long enough to earn your love and then leaves you wanting more. As was the case with the last effort from Frankie Cosmos, Vessel will be on a number of year-end lists by knowing music writers. We hope that this time more of you will be able to nod your head and say "oh, we know", rather than "who"? You've been warned.
Frankie Cosmos are Greta Kline (guitar/vocals/songwriting), David Maine (bass/vocals), Lauren Martin (keys/vocals/guitar), and Luke Pyenson (drums). Vessel is out now in digital, vinyl, CD and cassette formats via Sup Pop.
