Frankie Rose’s album Cage Tropical is very good. It has the feel of late-summer afternoon light through thick windowpanes. It feels like it lives in the world of a lost Felt album. It is hazy, gentle, sweet, and surprising. A meandering road trip from one coast to another, comforting for the incessant movement and newness it presents. Terminating in an unheralded Western town. Sacramento. Elko. Concord. Flagstaff. Rancho Cucamonga. Temecula. Settle in for a sabbatical. Land a job that lets you stay for a few months. New: place, lifestyle, sunsets, people, heat. The album opens up new vistas with every song. Brief and supremely listenable, one of the more enjoyable releases this year.
