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 out… 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 “My… 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 »

Foals – “2 Trees” Video

Adam Bizanski, who’s also directed videos for the Shins and Wolf Parade, etc., put together this clip for Foals’ “2 Trees” starring Singalong Paul. He explained Paul to us: “It’s basically a gloomy hand puppet that does lip-sync renditions to songs on YouTube.” It’s an ongoing project, so keep the faith Current 93 fans. For… More »

Foals – “Spanish Sahara (Deadboy Remix)”

UK 2step dude Deadboy delivers this remix masterclass on the patient build and minute-marker usage: at 1:00 the clacking beat drops, at 2:00 the syncopated clicks, at 3 the ticks are subbed for synth, at roughly 5 it’s all in. From there he has four more sets of 60 to fuck with, by the end you’ll… More »

Foals – “Miami” Video

True to their name, Oxford five-piece Foals are still young — frontman Yannis Philippakis is just 23 — so growth is is to be expected, in one way or another. But they’ve shifted up quite a bit from their debut days; gone is Antidotes’ producer Dave Sitek (Luke Smith gets tapped for the recently released… More »

Foals Remix The Field

When we posted “The More That I Do,” the lead track from Swedish minimal techno whiz Axel Willner, aka The Field, the comments focused on (a) how beautiful it is and (b) that is makes use of the Cocteau Twins’ “Lorelei.” In this remix by the Foals, you may want to shift gears to the… More »

New Foals Video – “Olympic Airways”

Don’t think Beijing, it’s more like the Gods and the recreation of culture, here. There’s so much going on in this video for Foals’ “Olympic Airways” — people sitting in fields with black balloons, stripping shirts and slathering themselves in crude oil, tossing tires and mattresses during outdoor band practice, setting fire to garbage and… More »

New Foals Video – “Red Socks Pugie”

For all the grief we’re ScarJo’s Waits remake is getting, we don’t blame the producer: Dave Sitek did his best to offset her vocals with that Siteky sonic grandiosity. Unfortunately for him, though, Foals didn’t feel they needed quite the same touch up. DAS takes a production credit on the band’s math-pop winner Antidotes, but… More »

New Foals Video – “Cassius”

British experts have been talking up Foals for some time now … or well since they started forecasting ’08’s breakouts. And we finally got to see ‘em this past CMJ. In the video for the ultra-catchy “Cassius” from their forthcoming debut Antidotes, the post-punky dance-rock quintet pose amid hanging hearts (it’s like Rocky or rope-a-dope… More »

The BBC conducted a poll of 150 music critics regarding the new bands they see breaking out in ’08. For those of you who read the lists by British experts we posted a couple weeks ago, the top 10 shouldn’t be much of a surprise — eight of the acts appeared previously, but there are… More »

Stereogum Does CMJ: Yeasayer/Alberta Cross/Sam Champion/Foals/A Place To Bury Strangers @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg, Brooklyn 10/18/07 (After The Jump Showcase)
