Like his collaborators Kanye West and Bon Iver, Oakland’s Francis Farewell Starlite has little regard for traditional song structures and much love for Auto-Tune. Pulsing gently with synths, finger clicks, and keening vocals, Farewell, Starlite!’s alt-R&B takes enough left turns to almost hark back to The Doobie Brothers’ soft-rocking soul—albeit a spartan, deconstructed version. “Friends” is the gorgeously shimmering centerpiece, but “Thank You” clears away the synthetic effects to underline Starlite’s sharp melodicism.
I've listened to this album 5 times in the last 24 hours, and I'm going for a sixth. He sounds strangely (wonderfully) like an indie electronic version of Phil Collins. I love that each song sounds different than the last. My favorites right now are probably May I Have This Dance and It's Alright To Cry. Such a good album. Can't wait to see where this band goes.

The music we've been waiting for
Once again Francis dazzles the senses with his unique musical style. Each song offers something different than the last and will be stuck in your head (if you're lucky) for days and days.
