Foster the people
Foster the People shared a new song today…and it’s a FREE download…back with the cut “Ruby.”

The song is called “The Unforeseeable Fate of Mr. Jones.”  Sadly, not a cover of Counting Crows “Mr. Jones.” Drat. Next time right Mark?

The single is backed with “Ruby.” An old b-side from a record store day 7-inch from a few years ago. Pretty song.

And you can help Foster the People battle teen bullying in Japan if you’re into it.

Zee is a South Korean producer based out of Seoul. Travelled back in time to 2011 to dust off this Foster The People modern rock radio staple.

Searching for a Whitney Houston remix of “How Will I Know” for a wedding I am DJing. This wasn’t what the bride wanted…but I dug it. We Win Gracie remix.

The bride was looking for “How Will I Know” (Pursuit of Happiness remix)…my google-fu must be weak, I can’t find it. Do you know what she is talking about? Leave me a comment below please and thank you.

Happy Victoria Day to all you Canadian blog readers!

best friend
Came across this remix of Foster The People’s “Best Friend” by the producer/DJ person Dim Sum. They didn’t write too much in the email and their Facebook is pretty to the point. I guess we’ll just enjoy the tune and not worry Dim Sum as a person. I think he’s French?

Freaking Cool.  Bear Week has begun on The Zone at 91-3.  One week dedicated to the mighty BEAR!  I recently asked Foster The People’s Mark Foster if he had a Bear Story…and it was like he kept one in his pocket, waiting for the day a radio DJ would ask him.

I had the chance to yap with Mark Foster of Foster The People last week.  We chatted about a bunch of stuff including some world travel the man got up to.  He talked about going to India, and how that changed the way the man will operate his life!  Sounded like quite the spiritual journey.  Back in LA, the man decides to call the new Foster The People record Supermodel…why is that?

Foster The People will be at Squamish… hit it up.

Interesting story out of NPR the other day.  Imagine Dragons’ “radioactive” has sat on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a record 77 weeks.  Why is that?  According to NPR…. religion.  NPR Pop Critic Ann Powers says, “It taps into one of rock’s favorite subject areas, and that is religious or spiritual imagery.  It’s like an apocalyptic theme. It’s end times. It’s straight out of Revelation.”

And she says its not the only  mainstream song on the charts borrowing from God.  Check out OneRepublic’s new Much Megahit “Counting Stars.”  Powers says, “That’s the power of pop music in America.  It can absorb all of the most important influences in our lives. And certainly, for many, many people, spirituality [and] religion, specifically connected to Christian traditions, are important. It’s hardly a new thing, but we always seem to crave it again.”

Foster the People are ramping up on the media circuit, generating the buzz to sell their new record Supermodel (March 14, Columbia Records).

They just got back from London, where they made it on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 show.  The band covered the Calvin Harris EDM banger, “Under Control.”  Back in LA, I had the opportunity to interview Mark and I asked him why the band chooses the cover songs they do.

He said the BBC has a list of songs that they have A-listed.  Mark looked at the list, saw Calvin Harris and in a couple hours, figured out the jam.

The original is a real thumper, but Foster the People break it down to its some melody, then put their Foster the People shine on it.

I’ll try to get some more of my interview with Mark Foster on the blog next week… including stories about his world travels that inspired the making of Supermodel, why he called the record Supermodel, and one most excellent bear story.

Foster
Let us take the new Foster The People song “Coming of Age” for a spin.

The record, Supermodel, comes out on March 18th.  First single in… sounds like Foster the People.  That will will either be a turn on or turn off for you.

Lots of hype from Mark Foster about global influences and how he is really into “rock.”  The creative process for Supermodel had the band set up on Morocco for a bit!  Foster saying, “We didn’t have any rules. We just created as much as we could in seven days (…) And in the spirit of wanderlust and discovery we ended up stumbling on the musical identity of what this record was going to feel like.”

I don’t hear the Morocco too much in this song.  Sounds like a So-Cal indie pop song to me.

Go with yourself.
