Enlisting for the first time assistance of the cream of the city's independent music community to form the Atlas Mountains ensemble (members of Knowledge of Bugs, Whalebone Polly, Crescent and Movietone all feature), the results are a wonderful development of the playful pop sensibilities that informed his earlier material, marking a clear progression towards a richer, more confident sound. His trademark DIY set-up is now augmented by striking arrangements of harp, melodica, clarinet and brass. Almost orchestral in its musical flair and subtlety, Francois makes for a natural conductor, his infectious enthusiasm and unwavering ambition shining through the new songs.
