Song Of The Week: Pumped Up Kicks

A few weeks back B said we should go check out this free show by the band Foster The People - EP in Silver Lake.  Well I was being a bit of a fuddy duddy and passed because it was on a school night.  Then I listened to their album a week later and was totally kicking myself for not going. 

My gf Avery and I have been digging on Pumped Up Kicks and the EP for a month now, and I think just about anybody would enjoy this band.  I mean the song has whistling in it, so therefore it has to be good no?  It reminds me of sunshine and summer and after all the rain and wind from this weekend, I am so ready for sun and fun!  The band has a similar feel to Passion Pit, Phoenix and Peter, Bjorn & John. 

Click here for a list of upcoming shows.  If you are lucky enough to be in a neighborhood they are playing be sure to check them out!

Ahh I love this song, but had no clue who it was - thanks for sharing! For some reason, I thought this was Young the Giant. I'm going to try and get tix for the Seattle show.

I love this song so much. They play it all the time on Sirius and I get so excited when I hear it. I'm happy someone else loves Passion Pit and Phoenix too!
