Bon Iver‘s new song “Blood Bank” above. Franz Ferdinand‘s new song “Ulysses” below…
Franz Ferdinand – Ulysses
Alex Kapranos of the band commented – Tonight: Franz Ferdinand is music of the night: to fling yourself around your room to as you psyche yourself for a night of hedonism, for the dance-floor, flirtation, for your desolate heart-stop, for losing it and loving losing it, for the chemical surge in your bloodstream. Its for that lonely hour gently rocking yourself waiting for dawn and it all to be even again.
