Listening To >> Francis and the Lights

This song, and Francis's voice, grew on me the more I listened to it... and now I really really like it.  Interestingly, they just performed with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, who I featured back here.

And the video, which was directed by the keyboardist, is a great example of what you can do with basically no budget if you get creative-- the whole thing is a single-take live performance, and the use of light is killer (looks way better in full-screen).

Especially love the dance sequence at about 1:50, so watch that if nothing else, it makes you happy to be alive.

Listen to the whole album streaming on their website here (I have a feeling this album is about to go into heavy rotation for me), along with more videos.  The video for "The Top" has some pretty amazing dancing by Francis...
