Frankie Rose

After moving back and forth between her hometown of Los Angeles and the indie-pop epicenter of Brooklyn, Frankie Rose unveiled a follow-up to 2013’s Herein Wild with August’s Cage Tropical. The former Vivian Girls and Dum Dum Girls drummer starts off her latest solo release with “Love in Rockets,” with lush guitar riffs, sparse drums, twinkly keyboards, and the very nu-goth opening line “I’m done resting my head like a wilting flower.” Rose makes every sound count, with delicate piano melodies meshing perfectly with robotic drum machine beats. Cage Tropical is a step forward, and though it’s ambitious to blend new wave production with indie-pop, the album does so while ultimately remaining fun. CAMERON CROWELL
