Frankie Rose at Beekman Beer Garden in July (more by Chris La Putt)
Frankie Rose

Frankie Rose (and not the Outs) will release her sophomore LP, Interstellar on February 21 via Slumberland. She'll welcome the new album with a record release show in Brooklyn on the album's release date, February 21 at Knitting Factory. Tickets are on sale now. As of right now, this is her only upcoming date scheduled. The album's artwork and tracklist are below.

Frankie is also DJing at the BV-presented holiday show at Brooklyn Night Bazaar (12/16) with Fucked UP, Dom, Big Troubles, Caged Animals, Radical Dads, and DJ Bill Pearis. Tickets are still available (and only $10).

One night later (12/17), you can catch one of Frankie's many former bandmates, Dee Dee (of Dum Dum Girls), DJ at Brooklyn Bowl (tickets) and play acoustic at Glasslands (tickets).

In other news, Hipster Runoff reports that Frankie Rose's fellow former-Vivian Girls drummer turned Best Coast drummer Ali Koehler was "missing" at Best Coast's San Francisco show on Tuesday (12/6), and "in her place was some other random dude who doesn't even look alt." Ali's Twitter seems to confirm the news with tweets like, "Super moved by all the support I received today. Didn't know that many people would care. I love you guys." and "Whether it's in a basement or at an amphitheater, you will always see me playing music in some capacity. Hopefully sooner than later." AND "http://alikoehler.bandcamp.com/." Head there to here a new song by Ali. A happy sad song.

You forgot Lana

@10:50 is wrong about james blake for sure.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 11:14 AM

@1109 true
@1111 word
@1114 idk, he might not be around long - other musicians like him, but as far as actual fans go, he is a hype machine that no one is staying onboard for. i admit he was incredible live; i just don't see him holding onto his fame.

Frankie's new album is pretty great, btw: lots of synths, jangly/poppier. Bigger, less-reverby production. Very different than the last one.

Posted by bill p | December 8, 2011 11:38 AM

you all know nothing. WU LYF rocks.

Jon Brion is producing Best Coast?!?!?! Excuse me, I just spit out my coffee all over my monitor.

Wu Life. Wu Wear.

When does Ms. Rose announce another boobie magazine shoot? That's all we care about. And, pullng me better espresso that you used to at Greenpoint Coffee House.

Whatever major label Best Coast just signed to must have instituted their "No fatties" clause.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 12:22 PM

10:50, I also agree with your list with the exception of James Blake. I wanted to dislike him to due gross amount of hype but his album/ live performance are/ were extremely solid.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 12:23 PM

@1223 he isn't saying they aren't good artists; just that they won't catch on and gain mass appeal (and will slowly fade as a result)

head there to HERE a new song

Bill Pear-ass, Ms. Rose's hypemachine, mouthpiece.

Best coast has been around before 2010

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 1:16 PM

Before 2011 I mean

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 1:17 PM

@116 also before 2010

Aren't Best "Turd Factory" Coast now on the label started by the dude from Denali?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 2:02 PM

Those track names are not very interesting.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 2:14 PM

maybe Best Coast will get less shitty live, doubt it though until they get a bass player. if it was about firing ugly people, at what point does bob get tossed too? not exactly so hard to believe bethany would do this. does this mean wavves will kick out his bass player too?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 2:29 PM

@12:25 yes, there are no examples of artists existing without mass appeal.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 2:36 PM

actually, the fact is, anybody that keeps putting out something will be around...

Lets face it, Best Coast whether you like it or not are on their way up and Ali's drumming skills were sub par at best. Would not surprise me if the producer of their new record or the record label forced this to happen.

Posted by truth teller | December 8, 2011 5:21 PM

who the fuck are these bands?

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 5:43 PM

Finally, someone is taking a cue from Buddyhead's "Rules of rock" and kicking the fat people out.

If you're in a band, and you got a fat dude/chick, they gotta go. Trust me.

Overweight or not, she was a shitty drummer, maybe even worse than Meg White.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2011 7:56 PM

Anonymous 6:26, its really hard to trust a douchebag who hides behind anonymity while he spews his self loathing over other people's body size. You could at least come up with a clever screen name.

Posted by nygrump | December 9, 2011 10:14 AM

she's ruthless and will stop at nothing to get her fame

Posted by Anonymous | December 9, 2011 4:34 PM

Who actually played drums on the Crazy for You album? Did Ali?

Posted by Anonymous | December 12, 2011 4:25 PM

for being followers of a blog with the word VEGAN in the title alot of you sure are a bunch of sexist ignorant fuckers. every time a post involves a all female or female fronted band i see this shit. keep going on with your hey i'm on the internetz so i can be a 4chan trolling pig routine. not to mention the asinine and racist bullshit on other posts.

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2011 3:06 AM

there are a lot of us out there who tend to take a band LESS seriously when they try to hard to be attractive. It's too bad the the word "poseur" doesn't get used as much as it used to.

Posted by jim | December 19, 2011 7:26 PM

7:26, since 5th grade I thought it was spelled poser. God fucking damn, a dictionary.com search proved that I was wrong.

Can you email me with some pointers on how you made your site look this awesome, I would appreciate it.
