Franz Ferdinand and Carnivores

By all accounts, Franz Ferdinand are planning a "comeback" this year. And by most accounts this is a good thing. The Scottish quartet hasn't released anything new in over three years (and anything interesting in even longer), leaving dance floors bare and bloggers feeling a little empty inside. But it really is difficult not to like Franz Ferdinand—the band can make even the squarest white male want to get out and dance, while still satisfying the rock-'n'-roller inside who likes angular guitars and pop hooks. They're more fun than anything America has called dance music in the past decade. Maybe "comeback" is the right word after all. MARK LORE
