Afternoon Bites: “Phonogram” Returns, Frankie Rose and Fleetwood Mac, and More

For fans of smart comics about smart music, it’s a fine thing to hear that a third volume of Phonogram is forthcoming. Writer Kieron Gillen has the details.

  • “Rose’s voice is somewhere in the space between Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie’s respective affects, and though she doesn’t match their skill as songwriters and she certainly doesn’t have a genius like Lindsey Buckingham arranging her material, she is nevertheless quite good at building simple strands of melody to a gorgeous climax, particularly in “Gospel/Grace.”” Matthew Perpetua on Frankie Rose.
