The Swedish quartet Francis is another band I am quite envious of.  Friends since childhood, they are now writing music, touring Europe, and producing records on an island in a storage room for boats that they built themselves.  How cool does that sound?!  What's more is that after the release of their debut album Lekomberg, We Were Kin last June, the person they toured with was Kristian Matsson, a.k.a. the brilliant The Tallest Man On Earth.  According to them, all of this was inspiration to start recording again quickly.  Hence, we are treated to the single "Traktor" from the upcoming EP This Must Be Blood due out February 27th.  The track has an instant likability; with an affable guitar riff and gentle vocals, "Traktor" is a mellow pop jam with a catchy, floating chorus.  You can find a download of the song at SoundCloud, where there is a B-side remix of "Traktor" by Simian Ghost.  There is a stream of the original below for your pleasure, hope you dig!
