shit, 'Little Lies' not 'Everywhere'

3 weeks pass...

Just today saw his video for in step. It's brilliant (prolly nsfw tho), I've also had a hard time shaking this song off of my system. I wonder if he's a huge popstar somewhere across the globe.

the "hits" keep comin'

Better Off isn't his strongest song, but the Tim Pope-directed video is dope as fuck.

In Step has burrowed its way deep into my brain.

similar problem to la roux with this album - songwriting actually not bad (likewise the production) but you have to get over his vocal style which i can just about do half the time - the other half he sounds too much like Justin Darkness.

admittedly still listening (ooh 'Vacant Heart' samples Mclaren's 'Madame Butterfly'...), but i like the idea of him more as songwriter and producer then singer/star on this evidence.

just heard some of this after maybe avoiding it because of "frankmusik"

sounds good but his voice just makes me think he has a funny-shaped mouth

i should clarify this is definitely better than la roux lp

the m/ar/r/r/s sampling one could be a fun single

At some point soon, JLC might build on Confessions On A Dancefloor and produce an album for an act that doesn't completely suck shit but that day doesn't seem to be getting any closer.

i didn't even realise he's credited with the whole thing and assumed Turner composed most of this (and chose the samples) as much of it doesn't seem characteristic of Price really (which is weird to write because of all the 80s refs and electro elements)

(Turner as in Frank)

wtf steve, frankmusik is not frank turner!

Background Zombie (CharlieNo4), Friday, 7 August 2009 11:33 (5 years ago) Permalink

oh, but apparently his real name is vincent turner. CONFUSING.

Also confused as to where Justin Lee Collins fits into all this.

Not too sure about the album as a whole, but In Step, Better Off As Two and (especially) 3 Little Words are absolutely brilliant. The album version of the latter in particular has Price all over it, to great effect - there's an 80s fairlight style stab he uses which is such a simple addition but it works brilliantly.

That one that samples "Golden Brown" oddly reminds me of Sulk-era Associates.

done done is great, not sure if it's on the album tho

Ah, so that's the end of Frankmusik then.

You don't come back from a collaboration with Far East Movement any better for it.

Who's careers have Far East Movement killed?

No one that I know of. Frankmusik is a test case, and he fails.

(Dev didn't previously and still doesn't have any career to speak of, so she can't really be considered.)

9 months pass...

Ha! Just saw he's killed the Frankmusik name, vacated his contract, and is now recording demos again as Vince Did It.

So...I was right?

2 1/2 years later I just remembered him, went on Spotify and found he's released two albums since this thread was last active. I'm listening to By Nicole right now (from this year) and it's like the dictionary definition of "decent".
