Album review: Frankie Rose And The Outs - Frankie Rose And The Outs (Memphis Industries)
Spooky, Wall Of Sound pop from cult Brooklyn indie icon.
Frankie Rose and her new mates are more about capturing a feeling and having a good time than spitting out pithy quips.
The group’s debut record sees the singer, guitarist, drummer and stalwart of the Brooklyn lo-fi indie scene bang out 11 Phil Spector-indebted nuggets drawing on 60s girl groups, garage bands and oscillating guitars.
Deeply retro-flavoured tracks - Candy is a prime example - feature multi-layered choral vocals, reverb and sleigh bells for a dreamy, almost ghostly atmosphere - like the angelic, slow-motion sisters of The Raveonettes, if you want a modern reference point.
“Hell, sometimes I don’t even know what the songs mean,” she confesses. So, best to bear that in mind and turn on, tune in, and soak up the garage-psych.
