Seventeen Seconds

    Night School is proud and excited to team up with Frankie Rose to reissue her much loved interpretation of The Cure’s masterpiece Seventeen Seconds.

    Pressed on Dark Red Transparent Vinyl with new, artist approved artwork, Frankie Rose’s Seventeen Seconds is the art of the cover album done right. "Since I already think it's a perfect record, I tried not to reinterpret too much and stick to similar sounds as the original, but with a twist.”

    Dark Red Transparent Vinyl Pressing of 600.

    Seventeen Seconds

    After spending years as a major presence in Brooklyn’s thriving music scene, Frankie Rose relocated to her familial home of Los Angeles for 18 months with the intention of establishing yet another moment in her storied indie rock métier. Gradually, she found herself short on sleep, funds and optimism.

    Towards the end of her time spent in Los Angeles, Frankie reached out to Jorge Elbrecht (Tamaryn, Gang Gang Dance, Violens) and began sketching what became the basic outline of what felt like a new album. Then, rather fortuitously, Frankie ended up back in Brooklyn with the realization that "in the end, I’m on my own. I have to do these things on my own." The months that ensued meant basically working with no budget and finding ways to record in-between days. This time enabled Frankie to experiment musically with a variety of people that ultimately changed the way she worked.

    The result of this existential odyssey is Cage Tropical, Frankie’s 4th album. It is awash with vintage synths, painterly effects pedals, upside down atmosphere and reverberating vocals. It evokes a new wave paranormality of sorts that drifts beyond the songs themselves. "My references aren’t just music," says Frankie, "I love old sci-fi. They Live is one of my favorite movies ever, same with Suspiria. 80’s sci-fi movies with a John Carpenter soundtrack, with silly synths – that makes it into my file, to the point that I’ll write lyrics incorporating that kind of stuff. It’s in there."

    Beginning with the shimmery, cinematic and percussive sparkling of the album’s opening track "Love in Rockets," the song’s refrain of "a wheel, a wheel of wasting my life: a wheel, a wheel of wasting my time" immediately alludes to those darker circumstances that led to the creative origins of Cage Tropical. "It’s all essentially based on what happened to me in Los Angeles and then a return to Brooklyn," says Frankie. "Misery turned into something good. The whole record to me is a redemption record and it is the most positive one I’ve made"

    "I feel like I am finally free from worrying about an outcome. I don’t care. I already lost everything. I already had the worst- case scenario. When that happens, you do become free. In the end, it’s about me rescuing myself via having this record."

    Frankie Rose

    Interstellar

      We were all knocked out by the Frankie Rose and the Outs album from 2010 but are you ready for the new Frankie Rose? – her transformation into a wholly other kind of pop, the reverie and revelation of 'Interstellar', an album that floats free of its maker’s history.
       
      So, out with the reverb of the Frankie Rose and the Outs, (and her previous bands) and in with something altogether more glittering and shivering. Interstellar is the confident swagger of a singer and auteur fully aware of how to build the simplest of pop moves into aching, full-blown melodramas, how to grab hold of an emotion and ride its darker waves.

      Highlights include "Know Me" a gorgeous piece of widescreen pop, dreamy and driving at the same time and “Night Swim” whose clean, big hooks bring to mind the best of mid-80’s pop – The Smiths, New Order -- without sacrificing any of Frankie's unique melodic style.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Andy says: Completely different from her super debut, but in its own way just as compelling. This is shoegazey, slightly wonky, deep 'n' doomy, romantic pop.

      Frankie Rose And The Outs

        LP - ONE COPY ONLY!

        "Frankie Rose And The Outs" is the debut album from ex-Vivian Girl Crystal Stilt, and Dum Dum Girl Ms Frankie Rose.

        Frankie, with her former bands, has been at the forefront of a scene that mixed the sounds of lo-fi garage, big reverb-drenched Phil Spector-produced 60s girl groups, the noise aesthetic of the Jesus And Mary Chain with a touch of Velvet Underground and a strong DIY ethic to create a sound that’s influenced a new generation of bands around the world.

        On her new group’s self-titled Memphis Industries debut, Frankie Rose And The Outs have their heads in the clouds a bit more than Rose’s previous projects.

        Listening to the ghostly golden oldie grooves of songs like "Candy" and the pedal-pounding "That’s What People Told Me", it’s as if the Cocteau Twins and Shangri-Las made a split album with the help of a time machine and a freshly-acquitted Phil Spector.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Darryl says: Riding on the current wave of cute 60s bubblegum sounds ala Best Coast comes Frankie Rose's new band. Lo-fi meets Spector-esque reverb meets JAMC's noise aesthetics, and hits now!

        Abs says: Includes a gorgeous version of Arthur Russell's "You Can Make Me Feel Bad".
