Foals - Antidotes (Eco-Mix Vinyl)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Antidotes is the debut studio album by the independent British five-piece dance rock band. Recorded with TV on the Radio guitarist and producer (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) David Sitek, and originally released in 2008, the album's themes are varied and cryptic, but are generally melancholic and focused on relationships.
Completing the circuit between the minimalism of American composer Steve Reich, guitars that sound like insects and tennis player Andy Roddick, theirs is a uniquely winning formula. Driving percussion high in the mix, guitars played above the 12th fret, no chords, and splashes of synth colour all come together like the schematics for a piece of precision engineering. And there’s something strange about those guitars. “They’re meant to sound like insects,” offers singer/guitarist Yannis Philippakis, “like a cloud of insects forming these strange harmonies.”
