Francisco The Man

Date April 4, 2012

Francisco The Man play a type of sunny, post-punk guitar rock that’s all been all but absent from the indie rock scene since the early/mid-2000’s when bands like French Kicks, Rogue Wave, Snowden and SOUND Team were all the rage. The Los Angeles-based band entered my radar through the guys at I Guess I’m Floating (who may or may not be releasing some of FTM’s stuff on their Small Plates imprint).

“Broken Arrows” won me over immediately with it’s hook-filled, shoegaze-y guitar riffs and exuberant melody. The last half of the song is absolute bliss, indulging in nearly four minutes of some seriously enthusiastic guitar jamming. Also make sure to check out “Tiger”, another great guitar jam with an opening riff that sounds straight out of Surfer Blood’s “Floating Vibes”.
