Foals covered Florence and the Machine’s “What Kind of Man” on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Foals’ latest album What Went Down and FATM’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful are some of our favorite releases of the whole year. Foals mashed up “What Kind of Man” with their own “What Went Down” for an explosive performance. The lyrical transition from “What kind of man loves like this?” to “When I see a man, I see a liar” is pretty great. At one point, lead singer Yannis Philippakis got so into it that he lost his voice. (The band recently had to cancel some South American shows because he needed vocal rest) In short, Foals went in, as they typically do.
