Next Thing by Frankie Cosmos
1. Track Reviews:
In “Sinister,” the smallness of humanity is noted. Kline says, “We really were a pile of rocks, on some planet so far off…” The chorus declares that sinister feelings pop up, that Kline cannot always be like “Arthur” who, apparently, never has sinister thoughts.
“On the Lips”
Off key and occasionally monotone, Kline’s vocals in “On the Lips” tangle over relationship turmoil and universal hope for love. She said, “Sometimes I cry cause I know…” to think, it all could have rolled differently with a kiss on the lips.
2. Words of Note:
Kevin Lozano said, “I became thoroughly convinced that Greta Kline is quietly writing herself into a vaunted place, one where she will eventually deserve mention alongside poets…anyone who can puncture your heart in the span of a sentence” (Pitchfork). Lozano praises Kline’s poetic abilities, he said, “Her greatest talent remains her ability to transform minute-long songs into experiences that resemble hours of intimate and impressionistic conversation” (Pitchfork).
