Frankel – “Anonymity Is The New Fame”


Frankel, “Anonymity is the New Fame”

I’m obsessed with this track from LA-based Frankel, the brain child of Michael Orendy – singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Given the celebrity centered lifestyle of that city, it’s not hard to imagine how an album and song with such a title could come to exist.

Anonymity is the New Fame, is Frankel’s sophmore release out now on Autum Tone Records. I’ve enjoyed everything he has put out so far and this is no exception.  His sound is decidedly low key and easy-going, like a sunnier, happier version of Elliott Smith.

Go get it on iTunes or Autumn Tone Records and enjoy.
