Francis Ximenez of Strange Names Talks about New Album and their return to the land of 10,000 lakes

Strange Names - Use Your Time Wisely

Minneapolis band Strange Names have been on the rise since they moved to New York where they recorded and released their debut full length album “Use Your Time Wisely” on Frenchkiss Records, which was released on May 18, 2015.


Strange Names made their return to the land of 10,000 lakes in July with performances at the 7th Street Entry and the Turf Club.

Music Director, Sam McIntosh, spoke on the phone with Strange Names guitarist Francis Ximenez a couple days before the band’s return to Minnesota. They spoke about the band’s new album, define the genre “next wave”, and discuss the differences between the Midwest and east coast music scenes.
