Frankie Rose & The Outs - CD release at Glasslands on 09.15

Frankie Rose & The Outs will be celebrating their self-titled debut release September 15th at Glasslands featuring sets by Light Asylum, MINKS, and Mirror Mirror. Ms. Frankie Rose moved to NYC in 2006 and since then managed to play drums for The Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, and The Dum Dum Girls. This new all female project falls in line with Frankie's preference for lo-fi, psych rock atmospheres rich in fuzzy guitars and tambourines. The beautiful vocal harmonies are definitely this band's main strength though. The band's self titled album is slated to hit record stores on September 21 via Slumberland.

The Song Shop: An Interview with Say Anything's Max Bemis

Max Bemis and Say Anything

If all of our shoulder devils that urge excess and temptation left our consciences to prevail and formed an indie rock band, Say Anything would be it.  With content ranging from sex, love, religion, drugs and all that’s stemmed in controversy, their music stands as an eccentric journey through the life of a bipolar, dirty-minded rock star that is bold enough to speak his mind.  Through the use of metaphors and one-liners packed with double meanings, front man Max Bemis always manages to conjure a bizarre twist on almost anything he blurts out.

It is no surprise that the filterless front man who penned lyrics such as, “When I was spat onto the earth in a stream of guts, by Mother Nature, that green-eyed slut”, would conjure up so much attention from critics and fans dumbfounded with intrigue.  Say Anything’s music speaks in tongues of straightforward honesty and off-center commentary, in a way that pushes listeners to the point where they almost have to question Bemis’ sanity.  He has nurtured his ability to write about prototypical scenarios, while confronting them with a stream of words that are anything but streamline.  His wittily-written lines not only scream out Bemis’ quirky, peculiar mindset, but also of his ability to understand the industry and his fan base of music hungry listeners.
