on their myspace. it's really really fucking good. The album should be amazing.
big rich antibalas horns are amazing!!!
when you hear a new version of an existing song that you love, you don't initially like it because you've got so used to the sound of the older version.
But there's something about this new Balloons... the guitars aren't as sharp and well-defined, the horn/sax/whatever it is sounds like an afterthought... and have the lyrics changed?
Even if it was a demo, I think the older version is better.
...Sitek produced then?
He's brought the noise. Fucking love it!
I think it's ace. Don't be sick....
the new version is call but I preferred the old one.
new version is 'cool'.
Foals = Good, Potentially Brilliant Band
Sitek = Fucking Genius
Foals LP = Going to be good even if you dont like them.
i didnt like Foals over the summer. But it took 6 months for me to get "Hummer" and now i'm putting bets on this being the best sounding LP of next year.
can anyone imagine what it sounds like to be in David's head?
i like it all except the vocals
...their songs sounded so similar that I thought they'd played Hummer about 3 times before the ended with it. Didn't they cancel a few shows to record this version? Worth it?
I really like this and they've definitely taken it beyond the demo. Result, but I would no way say it's one of their best songs...there's going to be a lot of other really good stuff on their album (cassius, french open, two steps twice, etc)
