Frankie Cosmos - Close It Quietly LPSub Pop
Vinyl LP pressing. Close It Quietly is a continual reframing of the known. It's like giving yourself a haircut or rearranging your room. You know your hair. You know your room. Here's the same hair, the same room, seen again as something new. Close It Quietly takes the trademark Frankie Cosmos micro-universe and upends it, spilling outwards into a swirl of referentiality that's a marked departure from earlier releases, imagining and reimagining motifs and sounds throughout the album. The band's fourth studio release is a manifestation of their collaborative spirit: Greta Kline and longtime bandmates Lauren Martin (synth), Luke Pyenson (drums), and Alex Bailey (bass) luxuriated in studio time with Gabe Wax, who engineered and co-produced the record with the band.
