A Heart is a Spade: Black Lips Debut New Video



December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Callers announces third album for October

Callers announces third album for October

There's a surprise 'round every corner and corners in plenty to be found on Brooklyn-via-New Orleans duo Callers' third album 'Reviver'. When you think you're about to comfortably dive into some light-hearted pop the skippy beat breaks down; once you're settled in the groove, Sara Lucas' soulful R'n'B vocals pierce through and you're heading towards memories of Motown classics but then, as you begin to be seduced by her sultry tones, a barely-there punk cadence or jerky rhythm kicks in and you're in for 'something completely different'.

Fact is though, all twists and turns flow seamlessly, and the experimental dexterity with which Sara & Ryan drift back and forth between one another's influences would make any middle-ground, if they were to seek one... well to put it bluntly, a waste of creative potential. The album only comes out October 9th via Partisan Records, but here's a teaser for you, streaming below; meanwhile, you can catch Callers as they head back to NYC in the course of their current tour, on September 20th at The Music Hall Of Williamsburg. - Tracy Mamoun
