Foals, ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, Part 1’ – Album Review

Foals, ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, Part 1’ – Album Review

Foals’ musical journey has so far been in a clear, uninterrupted direction. Their 2007 debut, Antidotes, a high energy, sparse salvo of danceable math-rock, established them as cult indie darlings. 2010’s Total Life Forever brought them to wider public knowledge by refining and expanding their sound.

Childish Gambino, ‘Awaken, My Love!’ – Album Review

This is a bit of a unique review for me; the album came out while I was in the middle of traveling around America.
