Foals - Mountain At My Gates

I have the utmost respect for the rocker who can wear a Barbour and still look fucking cool. I'm serious. Foals you take the preppiest jacket around, a basic beacon for rich American girls (who love fall and their iPhone cases), and you make it look rugged.*** I applaud you. I would also like to congratulate you on this new single. Veryyy catchy. This actually isn't surprising. I caught some of a set at Gov Ball 2 years ago, and the music was a lot dancier than I expected. "Mountain at My Gates," offers the same upbeat indie rock as older cuts^^^ like "My Number." I love the piano loop. Changes the whole vibe of the song I think. I only have one problem, and that is the song title. I know, it comes from the lyrics! But guys, it sounds like the title of a (bad) David Foster Wallace short story. Also it's too wordy to be announced on the radio. You don't see Nicki Minaj droppin singles called "Trouble at My Miami Penthouse" or "That Time I Fought w Taylor Swift." No, her songs are called "Anaconda" and "Truffle Butter," and they sell millions of copies. Definitely for that reason.You're welcome for this valuable advice.



**I'm sure British farmers wear them, but in America, Barbours are worn by stupid white girls. Our farmers wear #walmart

^^^look how pretentious I'm becoming!! Next stop: Beanie-ville & sober cigarettes.
