Press Play: Foals

  "Spanish Sahara"

 

Here's the visual experience of Spanish Sahara:

The hubs and I became fans of Foals back in '08 when their album, Antidotes came out. Their sound had us tapping our feet and swaying our hips. When we saw them at the Treasure Island Music Festival it solidified our case that they were one rockin' band that was making great music. Now, with the release of their latest album, Total Life Forever, I'm loving them all over again. What's so great about their songs is their build-up. It's what got me in their first album, and it's what's pulling me in again this time around. They start off with soft lyrics and before you know it, you're tapping your desk like a drum set. Check out the rest of this amazing new album on their MySpace. Buy the CD or LP on Sub Pop Records. Or check out their website for all their goodies.

next month-treasure island music festival


It's a good time to be living in San Francisco! I just wrote about the Outside Lands Music Festival going on next week, but forgot to mention next months festivities going on at Treasure Island. The Treasure Island Music Festival is happening September 20 & 21st. I've got my ticket marked for Saturday's line up with Nortec Collective, Foals, Goldfrapp, Amon Tobin, and more. Tickets are lot more affordable, with single day tickets selling for $65.00 (includes a ride from SF to Treasure Island). Anyone living in California should definitely road trip themselves to the Bay Area; it's not often you get the chance to listen to great music on an island with a perfect view of the city just across from you. Think about it, and hopefully see you there.
