Album Review: Foals - Holy Fire

“I can’t get enough... SPACE!” That’s what Foals frontman Yannis Phillipakis yells right before the band launches into a ferocious, locked-in paroxysm during the chorus of “Inhaler”, the first single from the Oxford five-piece’s third album, Holy Fire. Long hailed by the British press as one of guitar-based music’s most forward-thinking groups and mostly overlookedRead more...

Totally Extinct Enormous Dinosaurs took on the Foals single “My Number” with this electro remix. Barely resembling the original track which debuted on Jools Holland, the remix pulls in the hook from the original about halfway through.

However, Sub Pop band Foals performed to a packed Neumos to cap off the first ever City Arts Festival.

Correspondence from Austin City Limits: Day 3
