Am I Ulysses?

Cheers to Franz Ferdinand, one of those bands that have made the best of the system, went their own way against the wishes of their corporate backers and made something very new. "Tonight: Franz Ferdinand" is my early favorite for record of the year.

They've kicked off the studio sound and reinvented their own experimental approach to making a record.

In this video about making Tonight, they discuss creating their own ad hoc studio in a local theater, kicking out their "pop" sound technician and getting back to the fun of improvising with sound. This is what I love about the new art; the wacky, intuitive approach that values the process over the product.
