Foot Village kick ass


WHO'D have thought a band who sum up their own sound as "drum-n-shout" would turn out to be hard to beat?
Los Angeles group Foot Village's new LP, Anti-Magic, may sound like a shambles at first listen, but their strictly percussion-and-gibbering sound is spell-binding stuff.
From the welcoming Energy Hunters, through tracks like the harrowing Grace's Death and the rhythmic Crybaby, the LP is consistently as inventive, original and affirming as a group of people "all on acid" banging a bunch of drums can be.
In fact, Foot Village's Anti-Magic should be a shoo-in for any discerning listener's collection.
