Franz Ferdinands new album, Always Ascending (Domino), its first in five years, is practically bursting with new ideas.Sometimes the Scottish band sounds like its rewriting Yazs Situation. The first single, Lazy Boy, sounds like Giorgio Moroder mixed with Pink Floyd guitar riffs. And on Huck and Jim, singer Alex Kapranos raps. So yeah, this isnt Take Me Out (Part 2). All this change makes sense considering everything the band has gone through since the last album. Guitarist Nick McCarthy, who co-founded the band, left in 2016 to focus on his family. The bands previous project was to form supergroup FFS with new wave pioneers Sparks. And now, Franz Ferdinand includes The 1990s guitarist Dino Bardot and Julian Corrie, better known as producer Miaoux Miaoux, on keyboards.Huck and Jim shows how well all the experimentation works. Not only does Kapranos rap over a trap hip-hop beat, but the rock chorus is a clever political statement about the need for universal health care that references the characters from Mark Twains Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
