Frankie Rose - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Frankie Rose
As a founding member of the Vivian Girls, and a drummer/vocalist in both Crystal Stils and Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose has been an integral part of Brooklyn’s still vital music scene for years. Her highly anticipated solo project not only reflects the aesthetic earmarks of her musical past, but reveals her as a fully-formed artist in her own right.

Haunted by the ghosts of Brill Building, and equal measures of 80s and 90s pop, Frankie’s music evokes a spooky, lovely charm. Her ethereal, yet affectation-free vocal melodies, swirling in a sea of church-like harmonies over a bed of tambourines, bells, and propulsive drumming, recall such artists as Eilzabeth Fraser and Black Tambourine. It is both timeless and immediate; deeply personal and completely universal.

Ms. Rose’s self-debut titled debut, which hit the streets in July of 2010, is moody and subtle dream pop, as if Cocteau Twins and Spacemen 3 tracked a split LP with some help from Phil Spector. The record receive much acclaim, making it onto Rough Trade’s top 100 of the year. Cited by Pitchfork as “lean, elegant music that practically glows in the face of exceptional fuss,” and named one of New York Times Style Magazine’s “Ones to Watch,” Frankie Rose is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Look out for her sophomore LP, coming soon on Slumberland Records.

Alex Zhang Hungtai, AKA Dirty Beaches, started off as a one man band in 2005 in Montreal. A trans-pacific nomad and genre hopping sound smith, his past releases include drone instrumentals, film scores and a fascination with dissecting popular american music like blues, rockabilly, soul, RNB, and hip hop, often rendering them to the point where its no longer recognizable.

His latest release, Drifters/Love Is The Devil, is a double LP that chronicles the musician’s life on the road over the past 2 years, as we follow him down the rabbit hole through the labyrinths of Berlin, Belgrade, Paris, and many other cities through heartbreak, rebirth and masochistic existential self reflection.

Recorded between Montreal and Berlin in the winter of 2012, the double LP is separated only by aesthetics, as they are tightly woven together thematically as one conceptual piece. If 2011?s Badlands was an exercise in exorcising past ghosts in a semi-fictional world, then Drifters/Love Is The Devil is a reflection on the fragility of reality. One, of the surface world in which he explores the night life of bright neon temptations dwelling in hedonistic irresponsible values, and the other of the inner world, one of remorse and lovelorn tragedies.

As stated by the artist himself, “the most honest piece of music I’ve ever written.” Drifters/Love Is The Devil is out May 21st, 2013 on ZOO MUSIC.
Lantern - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
"Lantern is one Canuck transplant and two Americans who are exploring the crazier side of early rock and roll. As far as I’m concerned, they are one of the only garage rock bands in the United States of America that don’t just repackage the Nuggets comp and sing about paisley daydreams and chocolate alarm clocks. They take it all the way back to Hasil Atkins, Link Wray, and Bo Diddley—and they make rock and roll sound scary again. After receiving a degrees in music, the members of Lantern started a cool rock band instead of teaching elementary school kids how to use Xylophones, or whatever you do with a music degree." - Vice Magazine
