Noises: Minnaars; because Foals lost their edge

If you, like me, were a bit let down by Foals‘ most recent offering ‘Total Life Forever’ because it sounds like a different band to the one which recorded ‘Antidotes’ then don’t worry…there’s Minnaars.

These guys rose from the ashes of Foals’ label mates Tired Irie and fill the niche which Foals re-opened when they lost their more intricate mathiness and opted for a slowed down, remix-friendly sound.

I’m not slagging off Foals by the way, I still like them a lot but i liked them a lot more when they were a bit different and now…well…they’re not 😦

Anyhoo! Check out Minnaars folks:
