LA’s Francisco The Man are excited to announce the release of their debut album, Loose Ends, on Small Plates records this September 30th. It took roughly seven years, a teenage instrumental rock band, a debut EP, additions and subtractions, a roller rink and a near death experience to arrive at Francisco The Man. Following a two-year hiatus beginning in 2008, the band relocated from Riverside to Los Angeles, CA, bringing along a new addition, guitarist Brock Woolsey. With the help of Small Plates Records, they released two 7″s, In the Corners and Tiger.
The band has shared the first single from the record, Progress, which Pitchfork noted: “There’s an organic urgency to “Progress” that’s not just welcome, but necessary” and you can hear it here and buy it here.
Loose Ends tracklist:
1.You & I
2. In The Corners
5. In My Dreams
6. It’s Not Your Fault
8. I Am Not
9. I Used to Feel Fine
10.It’s True, It’s You

“Broken Arrows begins as innocent, pastoral indie only to erupt into an awesomely caterwauling, Doug Martsch- styled guitar assault. As misdirections go, they rarely come more jolting or effective.” – NME
