Just missing out on our Album Of 2008, Foals were definitely not the one hit wonder many thought they'd be last year.
Not only did they blow up big in '08, they also managed to survive the ever present hype bubble that loomed ominously over their heads. But hey! I hear you shout (through my screen), enough of all that Antidotes talk, where's some new bigger, better, 2009er stuff?
Well shout through your screens no more my humble group of music loving readers, your requests have been answered.
No doubt re-blowing the hype bubble around themselves once again, Foals have upped three new songs "off of their next album" (take lightly) onto their Myspace account so click HERE and check their latest blog entry to download them. The tracks names are A Future Dub, Dub Deux and XCFAVA...someone been listening to some Dub perhaps?
Front man Yannis Philippakis has spoken about the bands new material and said that the band are "still writing the second album" and it's sounding "less and less surf the colder it gets". Does this mean we could see a completely unique turn for a band wherein the material gets darker for album/movie/book number two!? Find in out in next weeks "Generic Lines From New Bands".
