foals. because you all deserve it.

i just got the new foals album about an hour ago, i can tell already i'm going to be a little attached to it for a few days. previous to this album they had only released singles, so this moment has been highly anticipated by the few of us who seem to know about the awesomeness that is foals. doesn't seem right that no one knows of them which is why i'm doing my best to spread the word. or maybe everyone does know & they just don't like foals. that is ok, but it would be hard for me to understand. however someone just told me they love neil diamond & i have a hard time understanding that too so what do i know? sometimes parts of foals music reminds me of minus the bear intros but i guess the best way i can explain it is that it is less calm that mtb oh & with a totally different sounding vocals. it's the kind of music i can have playing all day & i won't get tired of it. it is so interesting & complex that you hear it differently each time you listen.
here's their video for balloons. i'm not sure how i feel about the video. something about it makes me uncomfortable, i think it's the weird hand motions the girls make. but i also keep watching it so i guess i love it deep down with all my heart.
