Given the rash of post-punk soundalikes that have littered the musical landscape over the past decade, we’re certainly pretty skeptical when it comes to bands sporting angular guitar melodies, funk-influenced basslines, and dancefloor-friendly beats. Yet we do like Foals, an Oxford-based quintet that recently released its sophomore album, Total Life Forever. We also like the band’s taste in remixers, as they’ve enlisted UK 2-step champion Deadboy to put his touch on “Spanish Sahara.” Injecting the pensive song with some gently skittering percussion and some mild synth stabs, Deadboy punches up the track just enough to get our heads nodding and toes tapping.
