Listen to this: Francis and the Lights

I'm very psyched about Francis and the Lights right now. Go here to read my TONY profile of the band's leader, Francis Farewell Starlite, and go here to read a marathon transcript of the entire interview, in which we discussed his recent tours with Drake and MGMT, his admiration for Anthony Braxton (with whom he studied at Wesleyan), the fine art of saying no and much more. Also, I highly recommend that you (a) listen to the new Francis and the Lights album, It'll Be Better; (b) watch the new Francis and the Lights video; and (c) go see the band live either tonight (Thursday, August 12) at S.O.B.'s or next Tuesday (August 17) at Radio City Music Hall with MGMT.
