Aeronaut Records


1 is a curious title for an album by an artist with such a long track record, giving fair warning that there is a new avenue that Robert Francis is going to explore. With the release of Amaretto and Vol. 1 being only months apart, it is perhaps inevitable that there is a relationship between these two records. The former is an Americana record in Nashville, latter is firmly rooted in nineties indie-rock. It was when he was driving back to LA that the idea for Robert Francis and End Times took shape. I was in the mindset of the BMG deal, where people were telling me this isnt big enough and things like that, Francis say. 've long history of telling people like that to fuck off. Maybe it was time to adopt a new persona. I keep thinking, if people do like these songs, 'll just write some more. And by the time I got back to LA, I had pretty much the whole album write. I ca make any promises to deliver record that anybody else want, he add, laughing. I try to make a big rock record and it still ends up sounding like me. Accompany by guitarist Draw Phillips, bassist Shane Smith, drummer Brad Cummings, harmony vocalist Cori Elliott, and multiple guests, Francis booked several weeks of recording time at Total Annihilation, punk-rock studio in LAs Lincoln Heights neighbourhood. Id been doing a lot of listening to records I grew up with, from Replacements to Gin Blossoms, he said in the initial album announcement. I was going down memory lane and falling in love with that kind of music all over again, without letting my insecurities get in the way. I wasnt wondering if the new songs sounded too country, too rock, or too Americana. I was just embracing this form of heart-on-sleeve, nostalgia-driven rock n roll. Opening number Somewhere train tells you exactly where he is at. The opening falsetto vocals are immediately reminiscent of Radiohead or Coldplay before he launches into full anthemic chorus. The combination of quiet verse, loud chorus is try and test and there is a good reason why it is so successful-it sounds great. Coast is a catchy single off the album, build to Last is another powerful song firmly embed in American rock tradition. They do make them like they used to, Honey I was built to last. What its Like is another driven rock song that will recall earlier classics by other artists. You ca fault this album but you may not love it-its lively and fresh, band are having fun, sound is entertaining but not necessarily revelatory. This is a highway that has been tread before, but there is no reason another artist cannot enjoy such a classic view-not every journey has to provide exploration of new landscapes. It has subtle nods to Americana throughout but remains root in American rock.
