Man for so long I have not wanted to make this thread and I have no idea why. Anyway they're probably my favorite band. Very minimal, just layered so sexually.



FOALS

Anyway they have just realised a new album, putting them at an oxford pop band with two full length albums:


ANTIDOTES//

TOTAL LIFE FOREVER//

Both they're albums I love immensely. However, it took me a little while to get into total life forever where as antidotes I loved from the first second. For that reason I am saying that it is my favorite, but really there is virtually no comparison is how good these albums other.

I'm seeing them in July and I could not be more excited. They're live shows are renowned for being completely out of control, which I suppose you could expect from a band which made mainstream fame by playing house parties and other events of the like.

Anyway enough of my rantings, have a listen for yourself. And please feel free to discuss them I would love for this to be a thread with lots of contribution.

Thought there was already a Foals thread here, but I think that was just us talking about them in a Vampire Weekend thread.

NEVERMIND.

Seeing these in November. Can't wait.

Total Life Forever is such a good album, thinking I prefer it to Antidotes.

The start bit of Black Gold before it changes feel like half way through is probably my favourite part of total life forever

So I saw them last night, honestly pretty average. I think they would have been amazing if they were the first live band I had ever seen but dunno just wasn't feeling it. The crowd especially made the show pretty dim.

Of course :) Just if you have watched any live performances online, don't expect anything different. It's actually pretty amazing how their lives shows are as refined as their albums
