yeah man. i have the try this on your piano 7" (back when mears was still in the band), and its good, but i was a little dubious when he left. yannis' vocals are awesome though, so its cool. hummer is a tune etc etc. i like them. not seen them live yet though. im sure i will soon though, possibly next term. i vaguely know yannis' sister actually. LOL at minor indie personalities' family members.

i made this thread ages ago

i really like the try this on your piano 7", though i do like them now. my live 12" came today, though i have no vinyl player at home, i was at the gig as well.

I know what you mean about knowing them, not me personally. but Loads of my uni friends seem to know them a lot. my friend jason got a shout out on that 12"

I didnt like andrew mears voice, and i also dont like youthmovies. However i do like yannis' voice very much and i do love foals, but i think they lost they mathy sound a bit once mears left. Still the best band around at the moment though!

I saw Foals in Birmingham at the barfly and they literally rocked the joint. Their great in every way although I would agree about Mears maths influence w/all the odd time signatures.

Weird thing........

I now prefer old Foals stuff with andrew on, and very much like youthmovies and have seen them live and have spoke to andrew mears in person.

Strange..

Did this thread need to come back up from four months ago (or well over a year ago) when there was that other one hanging around on the first page?

First one to drop off this page can be closed, that makes it simple.

They have a remix competition on Last.fm where you can download the multi-track files for Electric Bloom.


What do you win?

What a ripoff. They should at least give you a cut of the money they make from it.
Still, might lead to people asking and paying for remixes from you if you did win it.

They probably won't make much from an unknown remixer, but if it is going to be download only they'll end up making a lot more from it than if it was placed on a solid format single. It's amazing how often bands manage to "scam" (for lack of a better word) fans in this way.

Going to download the pieces and just try and put it together in the way the actual song is, call it the 'non-remix remix' and let people download it for free. Wonder what the label would think if a big website did that. Could it be classed as illegal?

so i listened to these on last.fm and some of its not bad actually. i guess that'll teach me for assuming that anything the NME bums is probably shit. i hate that one song on the radio though.

No, but I can give you some pointers.... they play in the high frets a lot, I rember one of the saying he nearly always plays above the 12th fret becsue it sounds better.

Play on clean with the neck pickup selected/

He plays on a Travis Bean guitar which have aluminium necks, don't know what you could do with your amp settings to replicate it really, they have such a beautiful sound.

Yes, Battles is amazing.

I don't mind this band at all. I was on hold to go through to our medical helpline at work today and Balloons or Cassius was playing while I waited, which was pretty cool.
there is no fear in this heart.
