[ASPIRATIONAL INDIE] With the release of Holy Fire, Foals confirmed the notion that it’s no longer content with playing “songs for indie clubs.” While its first two records fused elements of NME-bating post-punk and noodle-y math rock, this album finds the Oxford quintet setting its sights on arena-rock dominance. Hiring Flood and Alan Moulder—the production duo behind the Killers’ and Nine Inch Nails’ most ambitious works—adds the sonic undertones and outsized grandeur requisite for increasing one’s font size on festival lineups, but it’s certainly not too big to fail. Save your smoke break for the cuts from side B of Holy Fire, and count on deep cuts from debut Antidotes deferred to the tail end of the set to revive the slouching “indie club” set that’s not quite ready for Foals to turn into U2.
