FRANZ FERDINAND - Always Ascending
Notify me when back in stock
A triumphant recasting, Franz FerdinandÆs Always Ascending is as exuberant as it is euphoric, bursting with fresh ideas born of what Alex Kapranos calls ôaggressive sonic experimentation.ö With the help of producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, Beastie Boys), Kapranos and co. took a knife to their old canvas, producing an album that is so foreign in its familiarity it could only be current. A sound the singer refers to as ôsimultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.ö These are the louche tales of the Parisian night, the exhilaration of an Italian car racing down the autobahn; a feeling of euphoria so pure it could only exist on a knifeÆs edge. As such, best to press play expecting nothing more than a good time. ôI hope that when you listen to it you feel exhilarated,ö Kapranos says, ôUntil you fully absorb the lyrics.ö
