It truly is best to hear these indie-math rockers in person. Hailed as one of the top live bands of Britain, Foals blasts out frenetically groovy loops that are irresistibly catchy, especially when heard from the stage. Frontman Yannis Philippakis leads the charge of the party, teetering on the edge of the stage to sing into faces of a back-chorusing crowd. Or he plunges deep into the audience, guitar and all, while riding a writhing wave of feelings and sounds. With Bear Hands and Kiev.
