Permanent Frost: Lo-Fi country charmer, sans blue mohawk, comes home
Singer/songwriter Edith Frost has come a long way since the early ’80s when she wore a blue mohawk and worked behind the counter of Austin’s favorite headshop, Oat Willie’s.
Just looking at her, one would never guess the girl with the thin frame, wispy brown hair and sweet-as-honey voice could rock a punk haircut, much less a punk-’n’-roll club like Emo’s.

Edith Frost, Lullaby for the Working Class, Knife in the Water
Emo’s, Saturday 23
Rooted somewhere in the Midwest, there’s a vast family tree growing from the mulch of Nineties indie rock. Its branches are surnamed experimental, post-rock, shoegazer, and otherwise pruned-down sparse-rock too young to be named, composed of the members of Tortoise, Gastr del Sol, Palace, and a gazillion others. Recently alit on its gnarled, inbred branches is Chicago songbird Edith Frost, who can’t believe how her former nest of Austin, which she left early this decade, has grown. Her openness and excitement about this and every topic belies the often turbid waters of her musical gene pool.
