Great Indie Pop

You owe it to yourself to check this out. I caught wind of Frankel through friends in LA and listened to his first EP quite a bit. This album is a major step forward for him. Fits nicely in the tradition of SoCal pop. Be the first on your block to discover the melodious strains of Frankel. You will not be sorry.

Great Album!

One of the best indie/folk/pop albums out this year. If you are a fan of Jon Brion, Sparklehorse, Richard Swift or The Beach Boys, Frankel will brighten your year. Beuatifully crafted melodies with clever lyrics. He's the real deal.

Remember when they used to make albums where you had new favorite song each week? Well, they still do; it’s called Lullaby For The Passerby.
