A well-considered concoction
Foals - Tapes

Compiled to reflect the sound of the entire band, Edwin – ‘I want to be more daring than to throw some random music together and call it a DJ mix’ – Congreave, has selected with more ambition than his curatorial ‘Tapes’ predecessors. Yet, is it humanly possible to withstand more ‘curated albums’? Yes; Ed has nous. Included here is a world exclusive… the first 1980s South African pop to appear on a compilation. ‘Confusion’ is an intriguing cornerstone for a well-considered concoction.
