Total Life Forever (May 10, 2010)
Transgressive (UK), Sub Pop (US)
After spending the last two years in shelter following the monumental success of Antidotes, Oxford dropouts Foals emerged from the mystery shrouding their recent activity to announce Total Life Forever, produced by ex-Clor member Luke Smith in Gothenburg, Sweden, for UK release on May 10, 2010. Although album previews are limited, Spanish Sahara provides us with a surprisingly downbeat recording, drawing from trip-hop, post-rock and ambient music to display marked changes from the hyperactive guitar pop of Foals' universally well-received past. This track came out on Monday night, and although most have probably already heard this - it'd be a crime not to post such a strong return to the public eye.
No more posting from me probably until Monday, i'm off to Brighton for the weekend, this time not to see a gig - I'm missing the Antlers there tomorrow night!
