DOWNLOAD: Frankie Rose and the Outs - Little Brown Haired Girls (MP3)

Frankie and the Outs

Despite her dislike of touring, Frankie Rose is taking the Outs on the road in October to support their self-titled Slumberland debut which is released September 21. You can download "Little Brown Haired Girls" from the album at the top of this post. The East Coast tour launches October 18 in Chapel Hill but more dates seem likely to be added, certainly on the way down to North Carolina. Before that, the Outs have two local shows scheduled: Saturday, August 14 at the Jelly's Rock Yard with Chief, Minks and Total Slacker; then an official record release show at Glasslands on September 15 with Light Asylum, Minks and Mirror Mirror (tickets).

The Outs have slimmed to a four-piece (no more keyboardist) and have become a pretty solid band in the last year. Maybe you caught their last-minute late night set this past Saturday (7/24) at Cameo, sharing the bill with Magic Kids and Xray Eyeballs. (Video from that below.) The album, 11 songs clocking in just under 30 minutes, has a definite through line of all the bands Rose has been in over the last three years (Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts) but she is definitely doing her own thing, with an emphasis on multi-part harmonies. (Most evident on their gorgeous cover of Arthur Russell's "You Can Make Me Feel Bad" which there's live video of below.) It's more mellow, dreamy, than anything she's done before. Twangier too.

All Frankie Rose and the Outs tour dates, plus album art and a couple live videos, and a set of unplublished pictures from SXSW this year, are below...

COASTING, is the worst band in Brooklyn...Im so sick of hipsters in their 30's starting shitty bands

We are tired of your horseshit songwriting, crap drummers and atrocious guitar tones. I already own C86 and all the Sarah Records comps. This is trash.

Someone needs to stop these guys. Beyond drivel.

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2010 7:38 PM

I think lack of interest is doing pretty well in stopping them.

"08-27 New York, NY - Cake Shop (Dance Magic Night)"

That cake shop date above was originally in a PF listing on their tour. It has likely changed though, I see more complete dates on their band myspace.
