  • Sage Francis - Li(f)e ANTICIPATION AND DISCUSSION (05/11/10)


    When splenetic backpack-rapper and slam poet Sage Francis recruited Will Oldham to appear on his 2005 song "Sea Lion", it was borderline shocking. Even though they tended to play the same venues, indie rappers and indie rock bands didn't have a lot to do with each other. Since then, the two worlds have moved ever closer to one another. And on May 11, Anti- will release Lie, an entire album of Sage Francis teaming up with indie rock dudes. Progress!

    Lie is Sage's album-length critique of organized religion, and on it he collaborated with a backing band that includes Califone's Tim Rutili and Modest Mouse/Iron and Wine producer Brian Deck. For every song on the album, Francis recruited a different indie rock type to write the music, and Sage himself handled the lyrics. Collaborators include Death Cab for Cutie's Chris Walla, ex-Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle, Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous, Tim Fite, and members of Califone and DeVotchKa. We've got the tracklist, along with a list of contributors, below.

    Lie:

    01 Little Houdini (written by Sage Francis and Jason Lytle)
    02 Three Sheets to the Wind (written by Sage Francis and Chris Walla)
    03 I Was Zero (written by Sage Francis, Richard Terfry, Brian Deck, Tim Rutili, Jim Becker, and Gordon Patriarca)
    04 Slow Man (written by Sage Francis, Joey Burns, and John Convertino)
    05 Diamonds and Pearls (written by Sage Francis, Thomas Hagerman, Shawn Gilbert, Jeanie Schroder, and Nicholas Iurata)
    06 Polterzeitgeist (written by Sage Francis, Tim Rutili, Jim Becker, and Brian Deck)
    07 The Baby Stays (written by Sage Francis and Tim Rutili)
    08 16 Years (written by Sage Francis, Kurt Read, Brian Deck, Tim Rutili, Jim Becker, and Gordon Patriarca)
    09 Worry Not (written by Sage Francis and Tim Fite)
    10 London Bridge (written by Sage Francis & Chris Walla)
    11 Love The Lie (written by Sage Francis & Mark Linkous)
    12 The Best of Times (written by Sage Francis & Yann Tiersen)
    Can't fucking wait

            and a bunch of others from "A Healthy Distrust", "Hope" (by Non-Prophets), and "Human the Death Dance". Sage has dropped constant dope shit. He's had a couple of mixtapes since then that are great as well. To say he hasn't had a good song since 2002 is the biggest understatement...ever.

                  So this leaked, and its really good from a couple of listens. The instrumentation is incredible, sometimes overshadowing Sage himself. I'll give a better review after more listens.

                        After more listens, this album is nothing short of incredible. This is a huge step forward for Sage as an artist. The imagery in his lyrics on this record regarding faith and life itself is wonderful. The instrumentation is also pretty amazing. If I had to choose ONE track I didn't like as much as the rest of them, I would choose London Bridge. Coming from Chris Walla, I was surprised how very little the song did for me. I'm sure it will grow on me. This album will probably only be understood fully with more listens, due to the underlying theme of religion. This isnt a straight forward hip hop record, so I'm sure plenty of people will write it off fairly quickly. Alot of it is sage rhyming solely over acoustic guitars, electronic backdrops, minimal drums, etc, and at times, the music seems to overshadow sage. I can already say this album is up there with a few albums I consider to be AOTY contenders (Fly Lo, Yellow Swans), and with further listening, I'm sure it'll stay there.

                          I agree, pretty nice, but will take more listens to understand full.

                            This is album that should be listened with lyrics, so marvelous rhymes, and so complex schemes for some people to understand it message

                            so far just found lyrics for best of times xD...crazy song
