As a precursor to our impending year-end list, we’ve asked some of our favorite artists to select their five favorite releases of 2009. As a past member of bands like Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, and Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose has quite the midas touch. Now she blazes ahead with her new band Frankie & The Outs, just another vivid chapter in the Frankie Rose saga. The new band plays “Beach Party” on New Years Eve at Cameo Gallery with fellow “Guest List” band Beach Fossils, as well as Surfer Blood, and We Are Country Mice. Flier and Frankie Rose track below.
Here are Frankie’s picks:
Moon Duo – Killing Time (ep)
Grass Widow – s/t
Pearl Harbor – Something About the Chapparals (ep)
Best song – Atlas Sound (ft. Laetitia Sadier) – “Quick Canal”
Best new NY band – STARRING
