This Saturday night, apparently most of my fellow music nerds where at home streaming and tweeting about the new My Bloody Valentine record. About 3 am, during a drunken hazy cab ride home, I got a text message from a friend, who wanted to know my thoughts on the new mBV album. My response?…That I was pleased to see that I wasn’t the only one drunk this time of the night. I did check my Twitter account just in case and started slowly comprehend that a new My Blood Valentine’s album was born. While it might be rather unfair that a post, featuring Foals latest video is pretty much about mBV, there’s actually a reason: One silly unrelated reason…
The same hazy night as mBV’s triumphant return, I was jumping frenziedly to a song that I’ve heard increasingly frequent the past few weeks. Since my relationship with Foals’ music is rather frosty, I didn’t pay much attention. Well, it turned out that I had a pretty good time to “My Numbers”. This is definitely not a song that will generate any new “alternative” followers (might even be quite the opposite), instead it flirts with mainstream radio, aspiring to become the new drunken British pub-favorite – and for that purpose, it’s a great success. Who knows, their upcoming album Holy Fire, might become a pleasant surprise.
