Frankie Cosmos: Zentropy

The K label must have been on holiday when Zentropy was doing the rounds because this fits right between the ramshackle thud of Beat Happening’s Black Candy and the falling-apart fragility of The Crabs’ Sea and Sand.

Frankie Cosmos - or Greta Klein - is so young (19) that on Birthday Song she measures age in days not years. You can measure her songs in seconds not minutes: nothing’s wasted or left out, even - or especially - in the 67-second stark confessional I Do Too.

All 10 songs fit on one side of a 12”. They do everything they’re meant to.
