I think it’s safe to assume that everyone has heard “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People. Many weren’t sure if we would see more from them after their first album “Torches” in 2011. This year we got a special treat when Foster the People dropped their long awaited album “Supermodel.”

Foster the People is arguably one of the best indie bands out there and has really created a lot of outsider traffic to the largely growing indie genre. “Supermodel” was good all the way through. Right from the start the band starts rocking and doesn’t seem to slow down till the very end. each song in their own individual right has something great to offer. They all have a kickin’ beat that just screams summer time cruising.

“Supermodel” was intended to be released Nov. of 2013 but was pushed to Jan. of 2014. Luckily, it was worth the wait. After hearing nothing new from Foster the People for sometime it has been great to hear more from the mind of Mark Foster, the bands lead singer and founder. The great thing about “Supermodel” is that every song is something one can find themselves getting lost in and really jamming out to. Many albums usually have a few good hits but “Supermodel” breaks that boundary.

Album delays usually don’t offer too much good news but the decision to wait until finalized was great. The band truly out did themselves and proves that they aren’t a one hit wonder but in fact have the potential to produce quality music that can provide entertainment for die hard fans, or new comers. Overall “Supermodel” was fantastic. I loved the feel good party style Mark Foster and his band created. If you liked Foster the People’s first album “Torches” you should definitely check out “Supermodel” if you haven’t already. “A Beginners Guide to Destroying the Moon” and “Ask Yourself” were just some of my favorite songs on the album. Check out this album as quickly as you can, I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
