Default Foster the People


Yet another dropped ball by Adidasss. (See, Florence and the Machine)

The album, Torches, has been given a cursory listen but I think its very good, and really disjointed. Which is to say I don't know how Pumped up kicks, Helena Beat, & Don't Stop are on the same album, or by the same band.

I don't know if you folks are hearing the same thing, but I can't merge them. Furthermore, they seem like a similar act to MGMT & Passion Pit which are also some of my favorite new acts. Feel free to jump in here as well.

I really like the commercial jingle song!

Holy Christ. I didn't know you still posted here. How the hell are ya, man?

Yeah I don't know how I feel about that one. When I first heard it I thought "Man this is pretty gimmicky" but knowing their other work I wouldn't make that assumption.

I was pretty shocked that they were the band behind it honestly.

Haha I'm so glad you get my sense of humor.

I was really surprised too, I was expecting it to be "some random indie band I'd never heard of before and will never hear from again" but alas.

And I can say likewise, I didn't realize you still post here! I've been busy being a senior in college and not giving a ****. How's life in the ****astic Northeast?

I took some time off. Place was driving me crazy. The Northeast is as cold and bitter as always. Boston is consistently setting new levels in being ****ty to other people. College is in Detroit or Ohio?

I think with the issue with "Don't stop (Color on the Walls)" is it was used in the commercial. And now I associate it with kids playing soccer and moms trying to be hip driving a station wagon.

I listened to this quite a lot when it came out. They have a nice sound, if a bit watery at times. Favourite on the album would probably be Call It What You Want. I think what made the album for me is that it's an almost perfect Summer Album - it's light, it feels like a hot summer's day somewhere, and it's depressingly optimistic in sound, if not so much in lyrics... I haven't listened to it since the summer, but I have a feeling that it won't resonate so much in this cold weather!

Yeah, I don't have the time to use this site for finding my new music. I've moved on to different means. Still like to come back here and discuss my favorite bands though, and of course for posters such as yourself

Home is in Detroit but college is Miami University in Ohio. Southern Ohio, so the weather isn't quite as bad as Detroit or Boston.

Sox fan by any chance? The way that season ended will get beaneaters infinitely more bitter than some cold weather.

From what I heard, Foster the People did not impress at Lolla. Maybe they aren't ready for the big stage yet...

Well they're one album in. No one is really ready for the main stage at that point unless you've been touring for years prior. Again, they sit in a field of bands I really enjoy. Passion Pit, MGMT, even Phoenix to some degree.

I'll never be a sox fan again. Not until they get new management. What a trainwreck Yawkee way turned out to be.

This album bores me to be honest. I rarely get into any music like this nowadays unless it completely blows my mind.

So this music can appeal to you, but this album does not. Any reason why?
