I have just been listening to the foals on Jools Holland (not a good host), so i write this as some damon albarn endorsed Algerian shitters do the world music bit that if it was not on the BBC would spell advert breaks, anyway back to the point.
The foals sound so promising, i know the hypes been there for ages but the actual music is wicked and builds up really nicely in this song, the jerky guitars somehow manage to stay genuinely fresh rather than 'Fresh' Indie style which died a death many a next big thing ago. But the foals genuinely sound like a good band, until the vocals kick in, which is where they bring their standard screamin, contrived struggle with the lead singers demons. The last band i saw that i saw that could actually carry it off where iFRussia!, that guy tom pulls it off, many don't (see the automatic for the obvious example). Anyways, i will keep blogging, keep coming back if you like it, tell me if you do.
