Foals, new favorite live band of the moment

On Sunday, the first thing I thought when Foals ended their set was, "more of this please, preferably as soon as possible." Awesomely, they were one of the "secret" guests at Neumo's last night with Wolf Parade headlining. Both are bands with newish albums that are good, without identifiable "hits" as far as I can tell, that I like more and more every time I see them played in person. One from each is on sciencevsromance . muxtape .com

If there are complaints to be made, it is that the crowdsurfing dude crowd is quickly learning the new songs from Wolf Parade's Return to Mount Zoomer and that the band split "Sons & Daughters of Holy Ghosts" far apart from "I'll Believe in Anything" in their set.
