Antidotes (Bonus Tracks)

by Foals
Antidotes by Foals
Released: Mar 2008
Label: Sub Pop Records
If Foals didn't exist in 2008, it would be necessary to invent them. Produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, their debut combines an absurd array of au courant sounds, including the frisky guitars and swelling horns of indie rock's crush on Afrobeat ("The French Open"); the slight-of-hand rhythms of 2007 math-stros Battles ("Two Steps Twice"); and the soaring post-punk of Brit acts like Bloc Party ("Electric Bloom"). This may sound too stylish for its own good (and it sometimes is), but then the twinkling guitars of "Big Big Love" hit, and you don't need a faux-hawk to enjoy those.
