Foals - The Alternate Side in Session - 2013


Foals' kinetic live shows have anchored the Oxford band artistically, as aptly described by the title of the quintet's powerful third album, 'Holy Fire.' There's an emotional grandeur and confidence to the new album, reflecting Foals' determination to forge fresh paths, unsettling old habits. A few weeks ago the band stopped by FUV to perform two songs from the album, and frontman Yannis Philippakis also talked with host Russ Borris about the unusual recording of the album.
