Riff: Foals – “Milk & Black Spiders”

Feb 12, 2013

Oh I hope you come with me/All those million miles away, it’s here/And I know you still believe

from Milk and Black Spiders lyrics by Foals

Another case of Foals on Autopilot, Yannis once again tries to tempt the object of his affections away to an unnamed paradise on a tropical-lite fusion of steel drums, plucked strings & jerky rhythms which explains why the band very rarely deal in straight-forward matters of the heart.
