Franz Nicolay – To Us, The Beautiful!

FN TUTB

Franz Nicolay

“To Us, The Beautiful!”

Franz does a rock record!  This is a very straight-forward rock and roll album for Franz, who is known more for a blend of theatrically inspired folk music (think a folkier Amanda Palmer, with traces of punk, and heavy on banjo and accordion).  Maybe it’s coming to terms with The Hold Steady or the time he spent in Against Me!, but this seems like a revisitation to a time before.

Grade: C+

Favorite Track: Talk To Him In Shallow Water
