If you like Little Dragon, be sure to check out Robyn, Roisin Murphy, SBTRKT, Sampha, Lil Silva....
Just listened to the Foals - Holy Fire. Excellent, I love these guys. Really refining their sound and while many people say they sounding much more mainstream like its a bad thing, I love it. Groovy, pumping rock with an edge.
Free show then. Good luck on the LSAT. Definitely the priority. Just wanted to give you a heads up because you've let me know about upcoming concerts many times in the past.
Thanks man, I appreciate it. The LSAT incidentally falls on the same day as my girlfriend's birthday. I'm gonna go ahead and take as a good luck sign.
By the way, I don't know where to post upcoming concert dates on the Habs forum, so I usually just post them here. Also check out Blue Skies Turns Black, a great website for upcoming indie rock gigs (almost all of them are under $30.) http://blueskiesturnblack.com/shows
I'm also thinking about checking out The Local Natives at the end of March. Oh and James Blake will be playing at the Metropolis in May.
New Foals album 'Holy Fire' is solid. They're doing a pretty good job pushing this one too. 'Providence' is probably the best track they've ever recorded IMO.
Probably checking out their show at the Kool Haus in May.
Milk & Black Spiders ftw. And Spanish Sahara is still their best song IMO.
Some people say that a lot of their material sounds the same. It's kind of like U2 in a way, but they're excellent at what they do and have created a nice kind of style and harmony. Songwriting has come a long way too. Personally they're one of my favourite bands and Holy Fire is good the whole way through, not a weak song on the album. Deserved better on Pitchfork.
