Francis - Beautiful Town, We Swear!

Beautiful Town, We Swear! is the strange, yet wonderfully-haunted sound-collage project of Francis, a Saint-Louis-based minimalist pop musician and classically-trained pianist. On Beautiful Town, We Swear! the album unfolds in a fashion that embraces natural silences, imperfections of analogue recording, the repetitious nature of pop music and the undeniable warmth of the Wurlitzer Funmaker Sprite.

Fun fact: The album was originally recorded as one continuous take, but has since been released as an 11-track project.
