One of the bands we kept hearing about during South by Southwest, which you’ll recall, we totally missed, was LA’s Foster the People.
Turns out, there’s good reason for that. They good. While they were described to us as “a little Disney,” we totally dig on their feel-good party sound, which taps into the ever-so-popular sing up high, party down low, MGMT-Passion Pit-Naked and Famous vein. It’s a well-mined vein, but the more the merrier, we say.
Check out one of our favorites, “Helena Beat”, this week’s Song of the Week and if you like it, head on over to their site to listen to a few more and purchase up an EP. I mean, it’s spring, right? We need some warm-weather party music already. Oh. And some warm weather, while we’re making demands.
