Foster The People, Framed
And, if they're not, we still get paid. So we're looking at this week as win/win.
Well, to get the show on the road, our guest artist is Foster The People, the superb SoCal combo who broke through with 2010's "Pumped Up Kicks." We don't do this often, but we suggest you listen to the song this week. It's one of our favorites of the last several years.
Plus, it's got whistling!
Foster The People consists of Mark Foster, Cubbie Fink, and Mark Pontius, and one of them can flat-out whistle. They posted "Pumped Up Kicks" as a free download and, by God, it worked. The song's so good it went viral and, all of a sudden, a bunch of record labels wanted to sign them.
So, now that they're in Framed — and for a second time, we remind you! — the whole thing has an incredibly happy ending.
Please let us know how much you like Foster The People and Framed, and then come back next week for an even better band and even better captions!
We promise to never sell out!
1 — Now that people can fly, pop music is superfluous!
2 — Mathematicians continue to be puzzled by the "Distance/Reflection Equation." What, is that so hard?
