As I write this, I am not listening to the recent Sub Pop release of Antidotes by Foals (MySpace), which is a great album by the way. No, I am listening to their Daytrotter Session, available for download here. I am also reading a nice little notice by Sub Pop updating their beloved press contacts with the latest Foals news.
That news is this: Foals released an iTunes exclusive digital EP on September 9th. The EP is titled Olympic Airways and, surprise surprise, it can only be purchased via iTunes. While I donâ€™t have any tracks to post, there is a video for the title track (and Iâ€™ve dropped in an mp3 from Antidotes for your further enjoyment).
â€œOlympic Airwaysâ€ is simply a continuation of Antidotes; it is similar in sound and scope. And the video is a fun forest romp that reminds me of a few drunken trips I had into the Idaho wilderness as an undergrad. So, if you dig Foals, head over to iTunes and pick up Olympic Airways, check out the video (below), and donâ€™t forget to snag the Daytrotter Session before you forget.
