new Franz Ferdinand. sort of.
Franz Ferdinand has posted what are presumably some looped snippets from their upcoming third full-length at their new website. The band has hinted that the new LP, which is tenatively due out this fall, would have "an African feel," and that direction is definitely evident on these relatively funked out loops (check "Trigger 7" and "Tradition"). Listen here. Assuming that's what this is, I'm pretty impressed...doesn't sound at all like anything they've done before.
