Following their Mercury Prize Nomination, Foals’ Total Life Forever is now available to listen to on Spotify.

The Spotify release includes a 23 minute interview with Yannis, speaking about the new album, his childhood, his growing interest in subversive culture and music, and a revealing commentary on the growth of the band since the first album. Listen to this, now!

Taken from my Foals Glastonbury review:

“The new album, Total Life Forever (Transgressive, 2010), was a realisation of the growing maturity in the band. The songs are louder, deeper (take a bow, Mr Sitek), more balanced, more energetic. It’s still definitely downtempo, but you sense, when you see Foals live, that they’ve got their craft exactly right now – explore songs and dynamics on record, but see them live to truly understand the band.”
