The Night Time is the Right Time

Franz Ferdinand – Tonight: Franz Ferdinand

It’s been a long four years since we last heard the indie swagger sounds of this Glasgow quartet. Breaking on to the scene in 2004 with their excellent self titled debut and followed by a quite adequate followup, I’m glad to say that Franz Ferdinand is in top firing form on their latest release Tonight: Franz Ferdinand.

Known in the past for their edgy/slight funky riff based indie style, Franz Ferdinand have recently decided to incorporate more of a heavy dub drum and bass sound. As front man Alex Kapranos has stated “It’s more of a dance record than a rock record.” And for a high energy band like Franz Ferdinand that works in their favor.

Starting off with a high energy rhythm on songs like “Turn It On” and the lead single “Ulysses”, Tonight really gets you tapping your toes and bobbing your head to it’s dance floor beats. As the album progresses we hear various dabblings with old school synths and a whole caboodle of bizarre percussion instruments, including what else but a human skeleton.

Tonight starts off strongly and definitely has some exciting moments spread all about, but like the last album I often find the songs kind of blending together. Usually because they sound too similar, but it’s never really boring. All in all this is exactly what I was expecting to get with this band’s latest release and I don’t mind. It’s nice to start 09′ in music on a high note and I hope to continue enjoying this album as the year progresses.

Favorite Tracks: “No You Girls”, “Turn It On”, “Ulysses”

P.S. I got a free vinyl single when I bought my copy at Silver Platters, I just wish I’d get a free t-shirt someday, that will always be the dream.
