Next Thing, the new al­bum by Frankie Cos­mos, has the spirit of a 1960s girl band, like The Crys­tals or The Shirelles, and the know­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of a twenty-two-year-old born-and-raised New Yorker. Frankie Cos­mos (given name: Greta Kline) is an eco­nomic song­writer who de­liv­ers con­cise bits of feel­ing on an even keel. Nei­ther iron­i­cally twee nor des­per­ately emo­tive, her style is poppy, even boppy, yet is suited for both post-breakup or party lis­ten­ing. Kline is the daugh­ter of ac­tors Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates, ded­i­cated par­ents who re­port­edly home-schooled her for most of high school. She’s a tal­ent, and she plays an all-ages show at the Meow Wolf Art Com­plex (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle, 505-780-4458) at 8 p.m. on Tues­day, April 12. Tick­ets are $10 and can be pur­chased at www.me­ow­wolf.com. — Jen­nifer Levin
