Everything Is Right About Musical Debut Of Frank Lloyd Wrong

Updated on August 14, 2019

Cleverly Named Band Proves Indiana Is So Much More Than Basketball And Mike Pence


Myriad Of Musical Influences Make Frank Lloyd Wrong One Of The Best Albums Of The Year

Fans interested in admiring musical architecture might do right to turn to Frank Lloyd, but not the famous genius behind Fallingwater or the Guggenheim Museum. The creator of this aural edifice is Frank Lloyd Wrong, an alternative rock band out of Bloomongton, Indiana.

The self-titled debut, which comprises songs written over several years, has ten tracks bursting with clever lyrics over music that blends traditional rock with touches of folk and techno. Knowledgeable music fans might recognize hints of Frank Lloyd Wright's two biggest infliences, Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes and John Darnielle's Mountain Goats.

Opening the album is "Powerlines", an upbeat electric tune that will make you think of Weezer. "Ode to Those Who Crabwalk" sounds more characteristic of the record, as it recalls the electric side of the mountain Goats. "It's Not You (It's Me)", on the other hand, resembles the acoustic elements of Darnielle's band.

"First Time", instead of evoking either Oberst or Darnielle, is more in line with the works of indie artist Pedro the Lion. "In Layman's Terms, because of its offbeat but catchy rhythm and tone, would not sound at all out of place on an album by Beck.

'Anthem" can be directly traced to the Wrong's Oberst influence,both musically and lyrjcally. Ditto with another track, a delightful breakup tune called "Good Luck. "

The last half of the debut is arguably even stronger, since "That a Boy" conjures up the softer, more serious songs of Fountains of Wayne. "Out in the Sun", the best and unfortunately the shortest track, has Frank Lloyd Wrong doubting his processed relief after a breakup.

Finally, "Mary Kate" is not after all about one of the Olson twins from Full House, but rather a sincere reminiscence of a loved one. Musically as well as vocally it could be described as a mixture of Cake and Wayne Coyne's Flaming Lips.

If you want to enjoy the full experience of the beauty designed by the similarly named architect, traveling to see the works in person certainly trumps viewing from the internet. To enjoy the creations of Frank Lloyd Wrong, however, the World Wide Web is the perfect avenue, since all you need do is visit the group's page on
