Welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! Here I, DJ Jordan, present the Discovery Artist of the Week with their latest music and a fun, laid-back interview. All styles and genres are welcome in the Discovery Corner, all I ask for is a willingness to be discovered!
This week on Discovery Corner I’m featuring Frankie Cosmos, somewhat of a musical supergroup (for those in the know) with members from Porches. and Eskimeaux. It is the evolved solo project of Greta Kline who once fancied this project as bedroom pop releasing albums nearly every month. Over time, she slowed it down to perfect the full-length “debut” Zentropy which drops tomorrow, March 4th, on Double Double Whammy Records. I spoke with Kline as she was in the van on tour with the band. We discussed the meaning of the verb “snowball,” her anxieties over being in a band with some of her musical heroes and her unwillingness to pigeonhole herself as a “album a month” girl. Hootie hoo!
