WAMU's Bandwidth Presents: Frankie Cosmosbandwidth

New York's Greta Kline has been cranking out lo-fi releases over the last few years under a number of different aliases. This spring, she released her debut full-length, Zentropy, as Frankie Cosmos — her first recording with a band.

Kline specializes in honest, personal pop tunes, with deliberate and clever lyrics that bring to mind Calvin Johnson's K Records sound.

"On the Lips" is from Frankie Cosmos' 2013 EP, im sorry im hi lets go.
