British sonic indie-troupe the Foals will follow The Rapture and The Big Pink in curating the next !K7′s ‘Tape’ compilation.
The !K7 ‘Tape’ series blurs the lines between dance and contemporary music with sides varying from modern techno nuggets to 25 year old ambient electronica.
“We wanted it to reflect the taste of the whole band” says Edwin Congreave (keyboardist), “so I picked music from the last five years of shared listening. We used to tour in an ex-royal mail delivery van – the DIY band cliché – and we drove ourselves to shows listening to each other’s playlists on a ropey old cassette player. 90s math rock, Greek folk music, Kompakt compilations, early Metronomy demos, endless Arthur Russell… sometimes infuriatingly eclectic, but it stretched our minds wide open. The Bibio remix of ‘Ted’ by Clark, in particular, sounds like the early days of the band to me, in all its hazy weirdness. It’s hugely nostalgic for all of us”.
The mix will be released on cassette and digitally July 24th.
