I’ve been writing on this blog for over 10 years now. I’ve met loads of great people and musicians. But one of the coolest things I was able to do was start the process of my old babysiter getting an internship at Sub Pop. As we were going over the Sub Pop roster, I was mildly chastised for not paying more attention to the music of Frankie Cosmos; the indie-pop project of Greta Kline.

Since then, I’ve gotten on board with Vessel, released earlier this year. Spanning 18 tracks, book-ended by the only two tracks that last over 3 minutes, Vessel’s tracks come across as journal entries. Much like anyone who is making their through the day, you have ups and downs. Some days you’re on top of the world and other days you need to be lifted up. Throughout the album, Kline does a great job of conveying the highs and lows so you feel them.

I’ve only recently become enamored with Kline’s work. Feeling luck that I’ll get a chance to see her tomorrow in Chicago.
