Rose without thorns as singer-songwriter takes her show on road

Frankie Rose has drifted from one retro-pop outfit to another — from Vivian Girls to Dum Dum Girls — but with The Outs, she’s further developed her reverb-drenched, lo-fi garage sound and head-in-the-clouds feel. To really get a sense of what it’s all about, we leave that up to our beloved Algorhythm (patent pending).

Take the irresistible, all-girl harmonies of The Shangri-Las’s 1964 debut, “Leader of the Pack.” Then add …

The hazy, distorted touches and searing guitars of Jesus and Mary Chain’s 1985 debut “Psychocandy.” Then add …

The Beach Boy’s 1967 album “Smiley Smile,” mainly for the psychedelic “Good Vibrations.” The sum?

Frankie Rose and the Out’s self-titled debut.
