HEAR THIS: Francisco The Man

Ah, the men of music: as there is Portugal. The Man, so there is another man on the scene: Francisco The Man. Named after a troubadour in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's 100 Years of Solitude, the LA-based quartet is more on the lines of Phoenix and Peter Bjorn and John than their listed genres of “Regional Mexican/Italian Pop/Shoegaze.” A band with a sense of humor goes a long way though.
Catch Francisco The Man showing some hometown love at The Satellite in LA where they'll be playing every Monday in August. And check out their With Friends Like You EP, streaming below:
