Posies to play ‘Frosting’s’ sweet pop sound

The Posies made one of the most amazing pop albums of the ’90s and they’re going to play it live this weekend in Chicago. “Frosting on the Beater” starts with one of the best one-two-three punch beginnings of any album of the grunge decade: “Dream All Day,” “Solar Sister” and “Flavor of the Month.”

The title and bowl of frosting cover art summed up this sugary sweet album nicely. “Frosting” owes a lot to ’70s gods Big Star but it also had that ’90-style crunchy sound. (Posies’ Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow are members of the new version of Big Star with original members Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens.)  The Posies play Taste of Randolph Street on Saturday.
