Frankie Cosmos’ best love song is her life

Maine always drummed in Frankie Cosmos and Kline played bass in Porches. With one band or another, they spent most of the spring playing a few times a week in New York and at least as often in cities that are easily accessible by car. Fortunately, the couple share a booking agent who has been able to juggle their schedules so they can tour together and then go home to their shared apartment in Greenwich Village at the same time.

For much of 2015 after deciding to produce the new Porches himself. Album, Maine worked to give the record an “odd, obsessive” quality and tinkered endlessly with its humble collection of microphones and newly stocked analog synthesizers. He’s not as fanatic as Brian Wilson, but he has that calm, distracted aura when we talk, when for no particular reason he rummages through a stack of business cards in his wallet while explaining his production process. “I’ve been working on the record every day for six months,” he says, obviously aware of the enormous amount of work that indicates this. “But you can tell that someone did it on their own instead of playing in a big studio in front of a nice microphone.” He says the album is “loved, but not too much”.

Progress on Kline’s new Frankie Cosmos album, which she thinks has the tongue-in-cheek title Next Thing, has been slower or at least less consistent. The band – formed earlier this year as a group of four with Eskimeaux’s Gabby Smith on vocals and keyboards and Aaron’s brother David on bass – had to find the time to wander all the way to Binghamton, New York, where a friend runs a studio, to continue working on the plate. Given Aaron’s verandas, this is no mean feat. Worry, Smith’s involvement with her own band and a few others, and David’s training masseuse job at a nearby gym. “Our album will feel like we’ve whipped it out,” says Kline. “We were up three times in six months and doing everything there. So it feels like the exact opposite [of Porches.]”

She speaks excitedly about her signing to Bayonet Records, the new masthead set up by former Captured Tracks employee Katie Garcia and her husband Dustin Payseur (who plays in Beach Fossils and Laced) with a distinctive sense of humor. “Yes, we signed,” she says, the fear quotes almost audible. “I have a deal.” Getting signed is strange terrain for both of them who, after years of posting material directly on their Bandcamp pages, had only just gotten to the idea of ​​working with their close friends on Double Double Whammy. The bayonet arrangement works because, as Kline explains, they are “people to hang out with and trust,” but there are still growing difficulties in becoming a more professional band: picking publicists, meeting label staff, speak with me. “It was nice to slowly but surely get to know the people involved,” explains Kline. “But it’s hard enough choosing three people for your band.”
