    Frankie Cosmos

    Alternative Rock

    Greta Kline’s musical output as Frankie Cosmos exemplifies the generation of musicians born out of online self-releasing. Kline initially built a reputation with her prolific catalog of bedroom recordings and as a performer and advocate of New York’s All Ages DIY scene. The beauty in Kline’s writing does not lie within immense statements and large gestures, but instead can be found in her ability to examine situations and relationships with heartbreaking sincerity. In 2014 Kline released her first studio album, Zentropy. Within months of its release, Zentropy became one of the most critically acclaimed independent albums of the year and was named New York Magazine’s #1 Pop album of 2014.

    In 2015 Kline signed to Bayonet Records, immediately releasing an EP where she experimented with writing in an electronic setting. The EP Fit Me In was well received and garnered a Best New Track from Pitchfork. Kline then began recording her next album appropriately titled, Next Thing. Like Zentropy, Kline approached Next Thing by fleshing out several old home recordings, and by writing half of the album from scratch. Next Thing explores new emotional and instrumental territory for Kline, and is slated for release April 1st on Bayonet Records.

    Big Thief

    Alternative Rock

    Every once in a while, a band comes along that leaves expectations, cynicism, and emotional distance ruined in a heap on the floor. Brooklyn's Big Thief is that band. To hear songwriter Adrianne Lenker's lilting narratives and twisted, fuzzy guitars is to love them. Lenker's lyrical storytelling is equally grounded and autobiographical as it is surreal and cabalistic.

    Just ask Big Thief fan Sharon Van Etten. "Some of the most compelling songs I've heard in a long time," says Van Etten. "Driving songs that take you on a real journey, with intelligent stories and twist-and-turn melodies. And fun as hell live."

    Today, the band, which includes Buck Meek on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums, announces its signing to Saddle Creek. News of their debut album will be forthcoming, as will a slew of performances at this year's SXSW. In February, they embark on a short stint of dates supporting Eleanor Friedberger, followed by a massive national tour with Yuck.

    Stef Chura

    Alternative Rock

    Hailing from Alpena (MI) but eventually wandering downstate, Stef Chura began writing songs in high school before diving into the world of basement shows, dive bars and DIY touring. Though she's been involved in various bands, when presenting her own songs (solo or backed by friends) Stef's music is by turns foggy and obtuse or emotionally blunt, heavy lines delivered in a sweet mumble or a softly sinister howl.

    Now stationed in Detroit, her sounds continue to develop, with new songs emphasizing fingerpicked guitar, meditative repetition and 90s-leaning lite grunge modes.
