Look out, everybody. Foals, an Oxford, England group who recently signed to Sub Pop (I swear I say that at least once a week these days) play the jittery, hyped-up post-punk that made Wolf Parade and Arcade Fire so endearing. Their album, Antidotes, which will be released March 24, was produced by Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio, and it contains all that nervous energy that has been woven throughout the popular indie rock of this decade. Vocal yelps, angular riffs, and thin keyboard buzzes: Yep, theyll likely be received with equal parts adoration and hipster backlash. With the Heavenly States (CD release) and Sleepy Eyes of Death.

Listen to a sample of Foal's "Cassius."
