The eagerly awaited album by the fresh collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks drops today, along with another collab., this time from Slum Village and De La Soul.
FFS - FFS (Album)
A near-perfectly balanced blend between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks – with a healthy does of MGMT's finer qualities thrown in for good measure – FFS is creative indie-pop like we've not had it for quite a while. Paranoia, delusion and anxiety make rare appearances in mainstream lyricism, while the light-hearted counter-weight is remarkably well judged. In fact, there's not much not to like about this record. Joel Robertson.
De La Soul & Slum Village - Right Back (Single)
Detroit hip-hop collective Slum Village have teamed up with New York peers De La Soul to lay vocals over a J Dilla produced track, 'Right Back'. Piano driven, and with a classic Dilla drum beat, the groovy track sets the mark high for upcoming album 'YES!', due out June 16. Luke Nightingale.FFS
