Foals detail “dirtier, swampier” LP



Yannis Philippakis’s baroque cardigan has loudly proclaimed release details of the band’s third LP ‘Holy Fire’. Apparently, it sounds “dirtier, swampier, and more booty shaking” than their last one, 2010’s Mercury-nominated ‘Total Life Forever’, a claim we’ll all be able to make sense of when it’s made available on 11 Feb 2013. Or maybe at their previously mentioned November/December live shows where, as it turns out, they will have a new record to pre-promote.
