Pumped Up Kicks MV

Live  @ The Echo

The Skinny: I came across Foster the People’s EP “Pumped up Kicks” a few months ago.  It was catchy, fun, and easy to listen to.  Then I finally had a chance to watch a free show at Echo with them as the main act and I’m on board with them as being legit artists.  They are Los Angele’s answer to France having Phoenix and Boston being the home of Passion Pit.  They sound 100 times better live than Connecticut’s MGMT and know how to bring their drum beats to life.  While the lead singer does have nasally vocals that Oprah would not gush Twinkie-fillings over, it is distinct and smooth like well aged tequila. People can catch them live at Coachella and while they haven’t really signed on to any official record label because of personal preferences, I can  see them blowing up in the near future.  Also expect to hear blowhards and music snobs get offended and butt-hurt over who they sound like the most.  As far as I’m concern, they sound great….well…if you’re into that kind of music.
