Foals “Spanish Sahara”

“Without doubt, the record’s finest moment is sprawling early blog hit “Spanish Sahara”. Foals’ music has frequently felt monumental in scope, often at the expense of the listener. But the way this one song in particular blooms, from its first traces of guitar melody to tear-jerking coda six minutes later, garners more goosebumps with every listen. It sounds exactly like what they set out to accomplish, done fluidly and organically. And in there, from the first few seconds to the very last, is a clear pulse. It’s not difficult to find.” Pitchfork review of Total Life Forever
