Frankie Cosmos

Greta Kline's musical output as Frankie Cosmos exemplifies the generation of musicians born out of online self-releasing. Kline initially built a reputation with her prolific catalog of bedroom recordings and as a performer and advocate of New York's All Ages DIY scene. The beauty in Kline's writing does not lie within immense statements and large gestures, but instead can be found in her ability to examine situations and relationships with heartbreaking sincerity. In 2014 Kline released her first studio album, Zentropy. Within months of its release, Zentropy became one of the most critically acclaimed independent albums of the year and was named New York Magazine's #1 Pop album of 2014.

In 2015 Kline signed to Bayonet Records, immediately releasing an EP where she experimented with writing in an electronic setting. The EP Fit Me In was well received and garnered a Best New Track from Pitchfork. Kline then began recording her next album appropriately titled, Next Thing. Like Zentropy, Kline approached Next Thing by fleshing out several old home recordings, and by writing half of the album from scratch. Next Thing explores new emotional and instrumental territory for Kline, and is slated for release April 1st on Bayonet Records.

Brought together by their elementary school band, Ben Jackson and Alex Bailey ended up swapping their trombones for guitar. After playing together throughout high school, the two parted ways when Alex went to study in San Francisco and Ben stayed in their native Atlanta, befriending vocalist Elaine Edenfield and drummer Doug Bleichner along the way. The adolescent bandmates were later reunited at a house party. Warehouse is the result.

Now joined by bassist Josh Hughes, of Stevie Dinner, the five-piece band finds its inspirations in Brazil's Bossa Nova and Tropicalia movements. Warehouse even received a shout-out from multi-hyphenate Bradford Cox, of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound, in his "Best of 2013" list for Pitchfork. Their debut album Tesseract is a slight departure from some of their earlier new wave material, and highlights more classic rock elements, matched by Elaine's guttural vocals.
