Francisco the Man released an LP on Fat Possum, touring with Jackson Scott, who formed Calypso (dates, stream)

by Andrew Sacher

Francisco the Man

LA’s Francisco the Man released their debut album, Loose Ends, this past fall on Fat Possum. It’s shoegazey indie rock with big sounding production (but not too big) and packed with hooks. Not exactly groundbreaking, but it’s super catchy stuff. You can check out three tracks from the album, below.

Francisco the Man will support the album on a tour soon with support from their Fat Possum labelmate Jackson Scott. That tour hits NYC on February 21 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that one go on sale at 10 AM on Saturday (1/10). All dates are listed below.

Speaking of Jackson Scott, he’s also part of a new band called Calypso, who are heavier on the distorted guitars than his solo project is. (Actually, Calypso would be a better fit for the Francisco the Man tour than Jackson solo.) Their debut EP, Oracle, comes out January 27 via Atelier Ciseaux. You can check out the single “Isn’t Now” (via Noisey) below.

Francisco the Man – “Big Ideas”
