The first fully realized studio album from Frankie Cosmosaka New York songwriter and bedroom-recording enthusiast Greta Klineis an impossibly rare instance of unabashedly twee songs that transcend self-consciousness and overstated humility to connect with visceral emotional currents. Built on the same heart-on-the-sleeve optimism as both the K Records scene and the earlys heyday of New York's anti-folk movement, Zentropy finds Kline presenting ten incredibly short songs of half-daydreamed, half-confessional melodic pop, delivered Birthday Song - Frankie Cosmos - Zentropy a softly deadpan voice that belies the intricate countermelodies and harmonies that hide in every corner of the album.
All the songs come on as simplistic and straightforward, but there's so much happening below the surface in almost every case, musically, lyrically, and conceptually.
Complex Smiths -like guitar lines, tempo shifts, and fearlessly open lyrics make songs like "Buses Splash with Rain" and "Birthday Song" crackle with an energy that seems masterful even in the context of their unassuming approach.
Often Frankie Cosmos recalls Kimya Dawson 's spoken-sung delivery, but replaces the toilet humor, brattiness, and self-awareness of the Moldy Peaches with painfully direct and honest lyrics of separation, confused love, alienation, and affection so blatant it seems like the narrator is singing to herself, unaware anyone's listening in.
