Preview Foals’ “Howl (Supermoon)” From Radio 1 Rescores: Drive

A couple of weeks ago, BBC radio host Zane Lowe announced the controversial project Radio One Rescores: Drive – Curated By Zane Lowe, in which a number of big-name artists make up an all-new soundtrack to the already fantastically soundtracked film Drive. We've heard Chvrches' contribution, and now we can hear a bit of… More »

Chvrches – “Get Away”

The movie Drive is only three years old, and its soundtrack is magnificent; it's arguably the best thing about the entire movie. But BBC radio host Zane Lowe has taken on the strange, difficult endeavor of improving, or at least competing against, that original soundtrack. Lowe has put together a whole new soundtrack to the… More »

Wild Beasts – “Palace (Foals Remix)”

British art-poppers Wild Beasts are into remixes. They dropped their Present Tense LP earlier this year, and since then, they've recruited people like Factory Floor, the Field, Lone, and SOHN to rework its tracks. And on a forthcoming Present Tense special edition, they'll include a full bonus disc of nothing but… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year's best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating… More »

Foals Join The Anti-Spotify Club

The list of artists who don't much like Spotify -- and, specifically, the streaming service's practice of paying artists very little money -- has lately grown to include distinguished types like Thom Yorke and David Byrne, and now it also includes the anthemic British skronk-rockers Foals. As Music Week reports, frontman Yanni… More »

Foals – “Out Of The Woods” Video

Since the release of Holy Fire this February, British rockers Foals have now released videos for five of their new songs, the most recent being "Out Of The Woods." From the grungy, head-banging first single "Inhaler", released last October, to the shocking, slightly disturbing scenes of a sleazy European hotel in "Late Night,"… More »

Outside Lands 2013 Sunday: Vampire Weekend, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Willie Nelson, & More

The final day of Outside Lands was definitely a more mellow affair than Saturday with its NIN headlined attack. Most people entering in the afternoon were greeted by Kurt Vile's excellent set on the Sutro Stage. Later a small, but dedicated group headed to an unlisted secret show by The Head And The HeartMore »

Johnny Marr, Foals, ALT-J Weigh In On Camera Phones At Concerts Debate

A few weeks ago, She & Him re-ignited the timeless question of smartphone usage at concerts when they banned cameras at their Toronto Urban Roots Fest performance. It's an increasingly common request made by bands, including Savages, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and others. In the interest of keeping the fires stoked, NME asked a number… More »

Foals – “Bad Habit” Video (NSFW)

Foals last worked with director Nabil Elderkin on the seriously NSFW "Late Night" video. The band and director are paired up again for the "Bad Habit" clip, which is about as objectionable as the sleeve art for Rush's Hemispheres. But a tasteful nude is still a nude, so be warned. "Bad Habit" i… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Usually, especially during the weeks where I liked a K-pop video or two, I do my best to explain what, exactly, I enjoy about the videos I list here. This week, though, Scott and I are on our way out the door to Stereogum's Range Life party, which is about to start. That mea… More »

Foals – “Late Night” Video (NSFW)

Foals have now released three videos from their new LP, Holy Fire, two of which have received the NSFW tag: first single "Inhaler" and now "Late Night." That's probably not a bad strategy; no television outlet (in the States, anyway) is going to give these things any airtime, and I'd bet NSFW vids o… More »

Foals – “My Number (Hot Chip Remix)”

When Tom named Pissed Jeans' Honeys Album Of The Week, commenter Robert Wohner implored us to not overlook Foals, who also released a new album last week: their third full-length, Holy Fire. I told Robert that I'd never been able to connect with Foals in the past, but based on his enthusiasm,… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Did nobody want to release a big, important video the same week that the Coachella lineup came out? Because there were no big, important videos this week. But there were some fun smaller ones, and we've got five of those below. More »

Foals – “My Number” Video

The video for Foals' "My Number" takes the traditional concept for performance video and throws it down the toilet. The clip not only shows what's going on in the crowd and on stage, but the seedier bits of a rock show. Check it out below. More »

Foals – “My Number (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix)”

We first heard Foals' raucous single "My Number" when they debuted it on Jools Holland. This Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs remix takes the song from house party to warehouse rave, brightening the track up into a muted house rendition of the original — almost unrecognizable until the hook comes in halfway through. Check it… More »

Watch Foals On Jools Holland

The triumphantly jittery British art-punkers Foals will release their new album Holy Fire in a few months, and we've already posted the video for their first single "Inhaler." And on the most recent episode of the BBC show Later With Jools Holland, they trotted out another new one: A shifty, polyrhythmic, Afropop-indebted number called… More »

Foals – “Inhaler” Video (NSFW)

British postpunk herky-jerkers Foals will release their new album Holy Fire early next year, and first single "Inhaler" is a bruising, cathartic banger with a full-bore chorus that gives me mid-'90s industrial-metal flashbacks. In its brand new video, the band plays in an empty zebra-striped swimming pool while mobs of disaffected-looking kids pull off pop-and-lock… More »

Photos From ATP Bowlie 2 Curated By Belle & Sebastian

The Belle & Sebastian-curated ATP Bowlie 2 took place earlier this week (December 10-12) at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead. (In 1999 B&S curated The Bowlie Weekender, which ultimately became All Tomorrow's Parties, hence the "2".) The event featured 40 bands picked by the Scottish pop ensemble and, according to photographer Elena Morelli, a bunch… More »

Just like last week, here are this week's attention-worthy videos. New ones from Serena-Maneesh, Antony and the Johnsons, Gatekeeper, Gordon Voidwell, James Blake, Kid Cudi, Mark Ronson, Torche, and Warpaint, along with a cute/creepy kid video from Foals and a cute, not-creepy cat filled video from Holy Fuck.
