Frankie Cosmos

Frankie Cosmos is the project of singer/songwriter Greta Kline, who also plays in Porches, whose frontman Aaron Maine in turn plays in Frankie Cosmos. She's got a number of releases dating back to 2009 on her bandcamp, including this past June's Why Am I Underwater?. Her material hints at the type of understated anti-folk perfected by the Moldy Peaches, most notably Kimya Dawson. You can stream that recent release below.

Frankie Cosmos played a Brooklyn show last night at Shea Stadium (8/18) with Spook Houses (who are streaming their new split with Fat History Month). Did anyone catch that? She plays Brooklyn again tonight (8/19) at Silent Barn as part of the previously discussed lineup that also includes Advance Base, Krill, and Thin Hymns. Doors for tonight's show are at 8 PM and admission is $7 at the door.

No idea who her Dad is. Some of us just aren't the hippest kids in school these days.

Seriously though, did anyone listen to the songs up there? What passes for blog-worthy these days is scary.

You'd think if her mother was Phobe Cates that she would be hotter.

It's rare to come across musicians writing songs as raw and truthful as Frankie these days, with no fluff or unnecessary ornament. Go through her bandcamp and you'll find a number of amazing gems.

Greta is a very talented and awesome girl. One of the most unique and tasteful and hard working pop musicians I have ever worked with, can't wait for you to hear the new album she is about to drop. No dads or moms were involved I can promise you all that.

Because it's awesome! Check out her songs, there's a link in description. Last album is delicious and available for listening on bandcamp! Yaaay! :)
