"Anti-Social Music vs. Franz Nicolay: Unlucky & Discouraged" is a remix and re-imagining of tracks from Franz Nicolay's recent "Luck & Courage" LP by members of the long-running NYC composer-performer collective Anti-Social Music (www.antisocialmusic.org), which celebrates its tenth anniversary early next year. It includes a track from Dischord Records' Beauty Pill (featuring Anti-Social Music's Jean Cook); as well as works from composers Ken Thomson (Asphalt Orchestra, Gutbucket), Pat Muchmore, Andrea La Rose, Brad Kemp, Kamala Sankaram, and Peter Hess (Balkan Beat Box).

Magnet Magazine called Anti-Social Music's debut release Sings The Great American Songbook #1 of "10 Records You Missed in 2005", and said "If Yo-Yo Ma and Ian MacKaye scored an Alfred Hitchcock film, Anti-Social Music might sleep through it[...]Imagine an orchestra wearing formal attire and combat boots, then replace the conductor's baton with a bottle of Jack Daniel's." Time Out New York said "Shunning the gilded concert hall, the Anti-Social Music collective has tackled the new-music concert scene with the DIY fury of punk."

Anti-Social Music members Jean Cook, Brad Kemp, and Maria Sonevytsky will be members of Nicolay's band on his upcoming tour with Stornoway.

"Anti-Social Music vs. Franz Nicolay: Unlucky & Discouraged" is available for free download at franznicolay.bandcamp.com and antisocialmusic.bandcamp.com.
