A Heart is a Spade: Savoir Adore Debuts 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)

NYC artists on the rise: We Are The Woods, live at Rockwood on 09.24

NYC artists on the rise: We Are The Woods, live at Rockwood on 09.24

Like many other indie kids, after a wild and rocking youth full of desdaing for all forms of tradition, we have slowly grown to enjoy folk music, in particular when it's somehow "bastardized" - the redeeming quality! This is a concept that - although clashing with the immaculacy of their music - is pertinent to We Are The Woods. This NYC based group led by a female duo emplyos acoustic guitars and a variety of other instruments (strings, flutes, tubas, you name it) to craft beautiful, sophisticated and intense songs that are thoroughly enjoyable. The folk matrix is still audible, but here orchestral, pop and even psych elements take over the reins. As it often happens in softer music, the vocals are a crucial element, and the ladies deliver big time in this department. Their celestial voices (Jessie Murphy's charismatic lead and Marcia Webb's spot on backing vocals) transform good songs into beautiful, arresting gems. We are very curious to see this band live - the next opportunity is at Rockwood on September 24.
