Description

Frankie Cosmos has taken several different shapes since their first full-band album, 2014's Zentropy, erupted in New York's DIY music scene. For Vessel the band's lineup comprises multi-instrumentalists David Maine, Lauren Martin, Luke Pyenson, and Greta Kline. The album's 18 tracks employ a range of instrumentations and recording methods not found on the band's prior albums, while maintaining the succinctly sincere nature of Kline's songwriting. The album's opening track, "Caramelize," serves as the thematic overture for Vessel, alluding to topics like dependency, growth, and love, which reemerge throughout the record.

Although many of the scenarios and personalities written about on Vessel are familiar territory for Frankie Cosmos, Kline brings a freshly nuanced point of view, and a desire to constantly question the latent meaning of her experiences. Kline's dissonant lyrics pair with the band's driving, jangly grooves to create striking moments of musical chemistry. Vessel's 34-minute run time is exactly double the length of Frankie Cosmos' breakout record, Zentropy, and it is an enormous leap forward. Vessel's unique sensibility, esoteric narratives, and reveling energy place it comfortably in Kline's ongoing musical auto-biography.

Vessel was recorded in Binghamton, New York with Hunter Davidsohn, the producer and engineer who helped craft Zentropy and Next Thing, and at Gravesend Recordings in Brooklyn with Carlos Hernandez and Julian Fader. It features contributions from Alex Bailey (formerly of Warehouse, and now part of the live configuration of Frankie Cosmos), Vishal Narang (of Airhead DC), and singer/songwriter Anna McClellan, all of whom have played on bills with Frankie Cosmos and collaborated on-stage with the band. The final mixes were done by Davidsohn, and the album was mastered by Josh Bonati.
