Sponsored: Our fave and yours Frankie Cosmos plays the UC Theatre next month

We've long been fans of Frankie Cosmos here at The Bay Bridged. From just about the time she released her second full-length, Next Thing, we've been releasing previews, reviews, and interviews right alongside her. A graduate of The Epoch, the loose collective of musicians from New York that has also produced cult favorites like Ó, Florist, and Told Slant, Frankie Cosmos (aka Greta Kline) makes a sparse, melodic rock that, as our writer Erika once pronounced, really is timeless. It's molded in a personal, artsy sensibility that, with a few tweaks, could fit readily into any college station rotation in [...]

Frankie Cosmos playing Swedish American Hall on Sunday

(photo: Samantha Casolari) Everything about Frankie Cosmos — the vehicle for singer-songwriter Greta Kline — is endearingly low-key. Kline has a quiet, sinuous voice that never rises to the point of heedless urgency, and the pacing of her songs has the torpid, meandering qualities of her fellow laid-back contemporary, Courtney Barnett. Matching the universal feel of her music, Kline’s lyrics delve upon issues to which we can all relate — relationship disappointments, personal insecurities, being homesick, etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IJB0aD8gSA Kline’s latest album as Frankie Cosmos (which she stresses is the name of the band, not a pseudonym), is called Next Thing and [...]

Review: Frankie Cosmos at the Swedish American Hall

Saturday April 16, 2016 was one of those not-rare nights when there were two great shows happening at two great venues that all end being sold out in San Francisco. I got the luck to see one of those great shows, and it will never be something I regret. When I got into Swedish American Hall I wasn't surprised at all by the the younger crowd, but I was surprised by how respectful they all were. I also was surprised by how much these kids idolize the musicians. I witnessed two freaking out quietly behind me as Gabby from Eskimeaux [...]

Q&A: Frankie Cosmos talks fave cereal, plays Swedish American Hall April 16

Photo: Samantha Casolari Frankie Cosmos is the brainchild of Greta Kline, but lately it's been more of a love child of The Epoch. The Epoch is an art/music/film community based out of New York that has helped graced our ears with music from Eskimeaux, Florist, Told Slant, and also Frankie Cosmos. For me, it all started it all started during my last year at art school, when I heard "Art School" by Frankie Cosmos for the first time. I went on to listen to that song on repeat for 34 hours or so; I can't really remember. All I [...]
