Hummer - Foals

July 2007 Edition – Track 11
Album: Kitsune Maison 4
Label: Kitsune Music
Release Date: June 11, 2007
Referral: Amoeba music

So I’m a sucker for intros – and Foals have me hooked with their jerky guitar plucking in the July track “Hummer”. Another Brighton-based band– the five Oxford University dropouts have made a name for themselves rocking out house parties in the UK. Difficult to fit into any particular genre– seeing as Yannis (guitar, vocals) says that their influences include afrobeat, techno, Nelly Furtado, insects, Maths, drugs and Andy Roddick (yep him with the killer serve)– its no wonder that their live shows get all the indie kids jumping around. And if the videos on their myspace page are anything to go by I would be a fool not to beg, borrow and steal to get tickets to the sold out Bloc Party gigs they will be playing at this December. No full album yet– but expect it later this year.

Meanwhile you can purchase this track on a great compilation put out by the french electronic label, Kitsune Music. The compilation features previously unreleased tunes and remixes as well as previous FoundTrack artists Whitey (November '06), Feist (June '06) , and Darkel (October '06). Purchase on amazon.
