I’m really proud of Francis and The Lights.  Not that I know the guys personally or anything, but they have really come a long way since taking a controversial stand against free music hosting platforms like Myspace, (although it seems that they’ve recently softened up and posted a couple of tracks here.)  The past year has seen them make great waves, earning nods from the hip-hop illuminati of Kanye and finding a new tourmate in Drake.  All in all, an unlikely match considering Francis is known for his falsetto funk vocals and soulful, echoing Peter Gabriel-ish sounds.

Me thinks the next time they roll into town, the cover will be a bit steeper than the lowly $7 I payed to see them at the Drake Underground last year.
