Brooklyn’s indie rocker Frankie Rose is all over the place. As a member of indie garage rock acts Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, and her newest band Frankie Rose and the Outs, she has been a key part of developing the indie rock scene in Brooklyn, crafting dreamy noise rock songs for the last 8 years. Following her cover of the Strokes “Soma” earlier this summer, Frankie tackles a fellow dream pop favorite, Mazzy Star‘s 1990 track “Blue Flower.”
While not as well known as their hazy love song “Fade Into You,” the California band’s “Blue Flower” is a distorted tale of heartbreak, enveloped in a shoegazy package. Rose takes the original and makes it even that much more bittersweet and haunting, sounding like a combination of 1960s pop and 90s lo-fi. Her cover is almost even better than the duo’s 1990 original. Download it below.
