Francis and the Lights, 'Farewell Starlite'

Make today better with one easy click

Good morning. Today is not as bad as you think it is, because the official ranking of weekdays has been updated; please adjust your attitudes accordingly and get with the program. It is bad, however, not because it is a Monday but because it’s the day of the first presidential debate and that’s all you’re going to hear about for the next ten hours. Presumably it’s all you’ve been hearing about for the previous ten!

On Saturday, Francis and the Lights released/leaked/posted a new album, ‘Farewell Starlite’; so if you need a momentary break from the din, put this is your earbuds:

You can stream and/or download the full album here; it’s very good. I have been anticipating the full album since the release of the first single, “Friends,” a fun, coursing melody featuring Bon Iver and Kanye West that kind of loops and builds and really doesn’t sound like a song you could dance to but that’s exactly what Francis and friends do and it works.
