Foals Gold

I'd heard a couple of tracks from British band Foals but wasn't sure what to expect when a friend recommended I check out their set at Reading on Saturday afternoon. Well, I was mighty impressed. Tagged as 'dance-punk', the Oxford five-piece bring to mind the Rapture and Goose mixed with Hot Hot Heat (back when they were good). The band's Mathletics single dropped a couple of weeks ago and their first full-length album is due to be released in the UK this fall on Transgressive Records. All signs point to awesome.
