Foster The People, Superhumanoids @ The Echo

Foster The People || Listen || Watch

We got word about this LA group last week called Foster the People who only formed in autumn 2009, but because of the speed with which information is disseminated these days, their song Pumped Up Kicks, which has yet to see an official release, is already being talked about as one of the sure-fire surprise hits of the summer. It’s one of those lo-fi indie tracks that, like Peter Bjorn and John’s Young Kids, has “alternative anthem” written all over it. Its crossover potential is confirmed by the simple, shuffling beat, the buoyant Brian Wilson bassline, and the outrageously catchy melody. The tune is sung through some muffling device that merely serves to make you strain even harder to hear the words, and after a verse or two the melody is bolstered by some whistling. And if that wasn’t enough to ingratiate itself into the heads and hearts of festivalgoers this summer, the lyrics are well chant-worthy. The verses aren’t easy to make out, but the chorus, even if it doesn’t mean much, does the trick: “All the other kids with the pumped-up kicks/You better run, better run, faster than my bullet.” It’s MGMT’s Kids meets Young Kids, with a hint of Empire of the Sun’s We Are the People. Quite clearly, Foster the People are into people power, and they’re doing it for the kids. – Guardian

School Of Seven Bells, Active Child @ The Echoplex

FYF And The Echo Present

SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS || LISTEN || WATCH

School of Seven Bells’ music is full of tensions—Curtis’ gentle guitars wrap around jagged beats; silky vocals hide behind grumpy, alien synthesizers—but the resulting songs are effortlessly cohesive, and insidiously catchy. Elements of dream-pop, Afrobeat, IDM, and 4AD’s gauzier moments provide a constantly shifting frame for the Dehezas’ lyrics, which they write as mysterious missives between the School’s imaginary seven members. On their Ghostly debut, Alpinisms, we get the impression that the three seasoned musicians have taken up full-time residence in a dizzying fantasy world; they move freely within the realm of pickpockets and dreamers, composing a soundtrack according to their own odd, beautiful logic.
