Taking their turn at the decks, Glaswegian rockers Franz Ferdinand curate a guitar-friendly Late Night Tales mix full of psych, funk, garage, disco, Northern soul, Krautrock, and R. Stevie Moore covering the Beatles. As is the tradition with the popular U.K. compilation series, the band leads off with its own cover of Jonathan Halper's obscure nugget "Leaving My Old Life Behind." What follows is a very listenable mix that spans the last five decades and multiple genres and includes cuts by Ian Dury, Can, Serge Gainsbourg, Life Without Buildings, and many more. Closing out the set is a spoken word piece called "Defibrillator," written and read by Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos.
