SOME NON-AMAZON CDs & Vinyl PRODUCTS NEAR knickerbocker ny

Antidotes Product Description This is the debut from Oxford Englands five-piece dance-rock band. Completing the circuit between the minimalism of American composer Steve Reich guitars that sound like insects and tennis player Andy Roddick theirs is a uniquely winning formula. Driving percussion high in the mix guitars played above the 12th fret no chords and splashes of synth color all come together like the schematics for a piece of precision engineering. Amazon.com Its hardly the cure for anything but Antidotes the debut album from Oxfords Foals is a strong addition to the eternal tradition of dance-friendly art rock most recently exemplified by Franz Ferdinand and Klaxons. The five ex-public schoolboys that make up Oxfords Foals are hardly lacking self-confidence--comically cocky frontman Yannis Phillipakis could annoy for the nation and the band rejected producer David Siteks original mix--but Antidotes is anything but pony. After spending their youth in rigorous math rock outfits Foals started out in 2005 with the stated intention of having fun. Rather delightfully this amounted to the discovery that audiences are well disposed to acts they can dance to. A clutch of well-received singles and a guest spot on popular sixth-form satire Skins sealed their popularity. Their origins in academic rock are sometimes obvious but fine drummer Jack Bevan keeps things moving throughout. Opener The French Open with its gleeful chanted vocals in French and fashionable Afrobeat tinged guitar lines evokes Talking Heads dada nonsense classic I Zimbra itself older than any Foal. First top thirty hit Cassius saw jazz-punk back in the charts for the first time since that perennial football crowd favourite Papas Got a Brand New Pigbag. Olympic Airways is a charming if oblique tale of escape that couldnt be further from the bus stop chip shop style while Red Socks Pugie already sounds like a single in waiting. The lyrics might charitably be described as impressionistic and Phillipakiss voice remains nondescript. But with better tunes than Bloc Party and a self-conscious precision that recalls Mogwai in their pomp the effortlessly pretentious Foals are unmistakably the sound of 2008. --Steve Jelbert Product Description This is the debut from Oxford Englands five-piece dance-rock band.
