Foals

Formed in Oxford, England, by longtime friends Yannis Philippakis (guitar) and Jack Bevan (drums), along with Andrew Mears on vocals, guitarist Jimmy Smith, and bassist Walter Gervers, Foals -- whose name is a play on the etymology of Philippakis' name -- began as a way to protest against the proggier sounds that were both popular in Oxford and in Philippakis and Bevan's former band, the Edmund Fitzgerald. After releasing the single "Try This on Your Piano" in 2006, Mears left Foals in order to more fully concentrate on his other group, Youthmovies (formerly Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies), and Philippakis -- who had lived until he was seven in a tiny Grecian village -- added the role of lead vocals to his guitar-playing duties. Edwin Congreave, a fellow Oxford student the frontman had met when they were both working at the same bar, and who introduced the group to techno, soon joined in on keyboards, despite the fact he had never played the instrument before -- nor ever been in a band -- and the full lineup of Foals was completed. The quintet worked on perfecting its poppy, jittery, upbeat, math rock/post-punk sound by playing house parties around the area, and soon the group was signed to Transgressive Records, who released the singles "Hummer" and "Mathletics" in April and August of 2007, respectively. Foals picked up quite a buzz in the U.K., and in June 2007 they went to New York to record their debut album under the guidance of producer and TV on the Radio guitarist Dave Sitek. The sessions went well, but the bandmembers ended up not being happy with the final mix, choosing instead to remix it themselves, and issuing the full-length, Antidotes -- which, incidentally, included neither "Hummer" nor "Mathletics" -- in March of 2008, while Sub Pop picked up the album in the U.S. and gave it an April release, adding the two neglected singles as bonus tracks. Two years later the band returned with their sophomore album, Total Life Forever, released by Transgressive Records. After having songs appear on shows like Entourage and Misfits, the band returned in 2013 with their third album, the expansive and more balanced Holy Fire. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

This mans voice is just wonderful. Spanish Sahara is a beautiful song.
Why must we compare the two albums? Can we say that they are two completely different things created by one band that is worthy of all appreciation ? Antidotes was great for dancing whilst listening, but Total Life Forever made us all sit down and contemplate. Hesitate. And though it's different it delivers the message it was supposed to. They created something that made me dumb-founded and completely euphoric and now I'm hooked. I'll always have Big Big Love for Foals.
blue blood is my favorite. haunting beautiful. standing on the tip of the ship, moonlight, the bay, the sea, the end of the pier. its a bright night breezey sea song. try it. u'll c
Um no Antidotes is soooo much better than total lfe forever.
Total Life Forever is sooooo much better than Antidotes.
