New Sage Francis Album Streaming At MySpace

SAGE FRANCIS' ground breaking new album Li(f)e is currently available for stream on MySpace http://www.myspace.com/sagefrancis#pm_cmp=mce_con_music_ft_album_sage. It's an ideal chance to sample this talked about work featuring FRANCIS' uncompromising lyrical discourse layered over musical compositions by an all star cast of talented artists. The stunning confessional of "The Best Of Times" with a moving atmospheric soundtrack by acclaimed French composure and multi instrumentalist Yann Teirsen has been creating a serious stir in England with an on air debut by influential DJ Zane Lowe resulting in an immediate fan buzz and subsequent spins by fellow BBC DJs. Other album tracks include the rousing anthemic rock of "Three Sheets To The Wind" with music by Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie, the soulful blues shuffle of "Slow Man" with a music by Arizona based alt-country rockers Calexico and striking compositions by Tim Fite, Mark Linkous, Jason Lytle and members of DeVotchKa, all reinterpreted by Francis, producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine) and musicians Jim Becker and Tim Rutili of Califone. So head on over to MySpace and sample SAGE FRANCIS' Li(f)e.

Cult-status indie wordsmith Sage Francis digs deep and blows the black mold off the diary on Li(f)e (Anti-), while enlisting an impressive roster of indie-rock songwriters. Loyal followers of the veteran slam poet/spoken word maestro receive a hot dose of expert wordplay revolving around the lies and hypocrisy teeming throughout everyday life, but Li(f)e also finds Paul "Sage" Francis at the pinnacle of his vividly entertaining, often self-deprecating introspection." - The Providence Phoenix
