2011: The Year of Foster The People

It's time to call it, before January is even over: 2011 is the Year of Foster The People. Not only do they have a head start on most other bands, with their "Pumped Up Kicks" EP dropping (edit:) today, January 18th, on Startime International, but they've got the songs (and the team) to back it up. "Pumped Up Kicks" is only the beginning. Listen to their new song "Helena Beat" and you'll want to put on repeat for a couple rounds. Catch-y, dance-y, awesome-y. And "Downtown" puts the dance beats in the back and piano chords up front for a smoother sound.

Catch them for free at the Echo every Wednesday for the rest of this month. You may never get the chance to see them for free ever again, and may never get to see them again at a venue so small.
