Great song in the header, Mike. That's one of my favourite songs that's out right now.

I liked "Pumped Up Kicks" a lot. Very ironic song, and I can't get it outta my head! Foster the People is a unique group. Not crazy about the entire album, but it's well-done.

I like Pumped up Kids but Helena Beat is better, you should liste Waste from them too.

The entire album makes me incredibly happy, though "Helena Beat," "Pumped Up Kicks" and "Waste" are the real gems. I'm going to end up listening to "Helena Beat" on repeat all day now :D

very cool song and amazing video. I wasn't sure if it was trying to be lord of the flies, zombieland, fallout or mad max. But it was still epic. The one thing that gets me in music videos though is when the singer sometimes sings. Either sing or don't sing. It just annoys me.

I've literally just bought the album based on the song at the top. Thank you for this Sacco.

While I really love their sound, upon hearing their entire album I became slightly distressed at how homogeneous it sounded. The group itself is very different from a lot of other groups out there, but at the same time, all their songs sound the same. This is probably just cause it's their first album and I'll have to wait till their second to really pass judgement on them. I'm just afraid they'll fall into that "We're different from everyone else" trap where it's almost impossible to stay different without spewing the same garbage over and over, ie: Evanescence, Metallica, Disturbed, and [up until their most recent album] Linkin Park.Don't get me wrong, I still jammed out to their CD every day this Summer, I just want to see them grow as musicians rather than be forced by a record label to keep making the easy, popular crap.By the way, "Life on the Nickle" blows all the other songs out of the water."Yet again I'm hustlin, hustling, hustling...."

I love Helena Beat! Great choice, Sacco!On the other hand, I'm pretty tired of Pumped up Kicks. Used to enjoy it until it got really popular on the radio. :/
