After putting in time with Vivian Girls (serving as the band's drummer and writing "Where Do You Run To," a highlight of their first album), Crystal Stilts, and the Dum Dum Girls, Brooklyn-based noise pop drummer/vocalist Frankie Rose decided to work on her own material -- a series of luminous, reverb-slicked indie pop tunes influenced by Talulah Gosh, Black Tambourine, and My Bloody Valentine. Rose released a solo single, "Thee Only One," on Slumberland Records in 2009, and teamed up with bassist Caroline Yes!, drummer Kate Ryan, and guitarist Margot Bianca soon after to form Frankie Rose & the Outs. The newly formed band's self-titled debut full-length was released on Slumberland Records in the fall of 2010. For her next album, 2012's Interstellar, Rose ditched the Outs and made a solo album that also left behind the noise pop in favor of a slick, new wave-influenced sound. Helping out on the album was Le Chev, a member of Fischerspooner and a well-regarded remixer (Lemonade, Narcisse, and Rose's song "Candy"). For her next record, Rose moved over to Fat Possum and working with producer Micheal Cheever, expanded her sonic palette by adding a string section to some tracks. Frankie Rose's LP3 will be out later this year.

Suburban Living
Some things just take time. Nothing could be truer for Philadelphia's Suburban Living, a project originally envisioned in 2011 as a solo endeavor of Virginia native Wesley Bunch. Yet, after 5 years and a move to Philadelphia, Bunch found Suburban Living to be much more than solely his own, joining forces with seasoned musicians Michael Cammarata, Peter Pantina, and Chris Radwanski in his newfound home. The resulting collaborative relationship amongst these four refreshed the project and expanded upon the already impressive groundwork laid by Bunch.

In early 2015, on the heels of touring throughout the U.S. and Japan, Suburban Living began writing what would become the band's sophomore full length, "Almost Paradise." During this time, a chance meeting with Philadelphia-based engineer Jeff Zeigler (The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing) led to Zeigler offering to work with the band on their next recording. "Working with Jeff was pretty amazing. I’d never worked with an engineer that knew exactly how I wanted something to sound without me having to express it." explains Bunch. The support of Zeigler, as well as his bandmates, equipped Bunch to spearhead undeniably the best Suburban Living material to date.
