Frankie Rose Interview, Album, Tour

By March 22, 2012

Follow me on:

Former Crystal Stilts/Vivian Girls/Dum Dum Girls drummer Frankie Rose recently released Interstellar, her second solo LP. It's really great; a collection of bubblegum pop-songs and cosmic ballads that find the Brooklyn-based dame ditching lo-fi fuzz for a bright, brilliant, synthy sheen.

"I wanted it to be totally different!" Rose said in an interview, with me, recently, of Interstellar. "The first record was totally self-produced, and from beginning to end I played almost all of it... just me working at it, at my highest-level of being able to produce a record. This time, I wanted to find a producer who would make choices that I would never make, so I wouldn't make the same record twice."

Rose also discussed online misogyny and indie music's delusions of gender balance, her beginnings, and her dreams of never making the same record twice. She's also about to go on tour, taking the goodness of Interstellar unto the masses...
