Tag Archives: February



While writing this post, I just realized “Shit, it’s been months since I posted something”. I really just haven’t had the time, but I feel compelled to write about the new Foals single ‘Inhaler’. Loud, boisterous, expansive and addictive are the first four words that came into my head. Yannis and co are my boys and I fucking loved ‘Total Life Forever’ so much, but this. This hints at something even bigger and better. Their third record ‘Holy Fire’ is out in February and it is definitely one of my most anticipated albums ever. They’ve knocked it out’ve the park with this track though. I hope this wasn’t too much mumbojumbo for you, I’m just really excited!

Radiohead announce Tour Info

 Radiohead have revealed tentative plans for planned touring in 2012. In an interview with BBC 6MusicEd O’Brien said the band is finalizing plans to tour the UK and US between February and November next year.

O’Brien emphasized that the band will play songs that will fit in with the songs off their latest effort The King of Limbs’ and not a greatest hits show. When asked about playing summer festivals O’Brien said that it “just doesn’t feel right this time,” and that the band will play indoor arenas where “the music is loud, strong, and detailed.”

The band members have been very busy as of late. Thom Yorke’s side-project band with Flea of Red Hot Chili PeppersAtoms for Peace’, are expected to release their debut album in 2012 at some period. After his score for the 2007 film ‘There Will be Blood’, Jonny Greenwood has written the music for the upcoming film ‘We Need To talk About Kevin’.

Check out the band performing non-KOL’s track ‘Staircase’ live from the basement below:
