Foals tackled ‘Super Inuit’ turning the song into something more akin to the sessions they did with Kieran Hebden – repetitious, rhythmic and long. It becomes indistinguishable from the original by the end. Meanwhile, Holy Fuck sample then reduce the tempo of ‘Balloons’ until it becomes blissed out and slow motion version of itself.
Both covers are more exercises (“Let’s see what will happen if”) but it’s interesting to see how each band appropriates the sound of the other into their core setup.
