DOWNLOAD: Foals - Hummer (MP3)

Foals
Foals

Foals are a Bloc Party-esque dance-punk band from the UK - a band whose MySpace page I found myself visiting quite often lately - partly because I had heard they were coming for CMJ, and now I know they'll be playing Bowery Ballroom with Le Loup, The Brunettes & Band of Horses on Saturday October 20th. It's the Sub Pop/Hardly Art showcase, but whether Foals actually have a record deal in the works with one of those related labels is not known at this time. Tickets go on sale Wednesday at noon.

Tickets are also still on sale for the other known Bowery CMJ shows. Tuesday & Thursday (of CMJ @ Bowery) are still unknown, but I can tell you at least that Tuesday will be revealed very soon...

they sound fuck all like bloc party

in addition to that, they're amazing.

How can you say they sound like every other band? HOW CAN YOU SAY THEY SOUND LIKE BLOC PARTY? Foals are awesome and really unique. no other band can you dance to so easilly. No other band has such an individual sound and metronomical approach to songs.

God, I bet you just judged them on one song too.

Listen and learn...

And on the eighth day, bored of Adam's eternal fecking whistling, God created Foals.
