Foals in the Studio!
Jimmy Smith of Foals is starting to be one of my favorite guitarists. The combination of his and Yannis’ guitar interplay is a huge part of why I really like Foals. Over the last year, I’ve been playing a lot of my Fender Jazzmaster, and thought it was great seeing Jimmy using one (actually a […]
A lot of you already know I’m a big Foals fan. For those of you didn’t know, I’ve been a big fan of the English band – Foals for a few years now. Absolutely love what they’re all about. Yannis Philippakis is the lead singer and guitarist for the band. He’s always seen playing a […]
If you’ve been following me on Twitter or paying attention to this site, you may have noticed that I’m a fan of Foals from Oxford, England. I had a chance to seem them last year in Chicago (which was an amazing show), and recently I just saw them in Portland. A few of you asked […]
Seems like a few people know that I’m a fan of Foals. I’ve broken down Yannis Philippakis and Jimmy Smith‘s boards in the past. Recently, I’ve a had a few requests regarding the bass player, Walter Gervers, set up. When I think of Foals, I think about the carefully interwoven guitar lines of Yannis and […]

Reading an article a while ago, it mentioned the two guitarists like to create polyrhythms. Basically two time signatures but can be played straight […]
From some of my previous postings, you may notice that I’m a big Foals fan. Truth be told.. these guys are awesome, and I’m really into what they’re doing. Foals have a unique way of creating inter-weaving guitar interplay and tension with the use of clean guitar tones and upbeat drumming. There are various aspects […]
For another project I’ve been working on, I had an opportunity to make it to one of my favorite cities this weekend.. Chicago. Man, I have to say I really dig Chicago. The people are wonderful, and I’m always amazed at how nice everyone is. I know there are always exceptions to the rule, but […]
One of the bands I’ve been liking for a while now, is Foals. I think they’re really interesting, and for whatever reason, I seriously get hooked listening to them. They definitely don’t fit my ‘typical’ band that I like to listen to which makes it that more fun and different for me. Their angle is […]
