#106 – Pumped Up Kicks

Here’s a jolly good song and three remixes to go with it. It’s from Foster The People, who’s debut album Torches came out back in May on Columbia. The song ‘Pumped Up Kids’ made quite a stir over a year ago now. Considering it’s about a bunch of kids getting violent it seems oddly relevant right now. It’s a big tune though, in it’s own stoner/trippy kind of way, largely in thanks to that amazing bassline. I miss playing the bass. I think I’ll go and play some bass…

And here are the remixes. The first one is fresh and we owe All Things Go thanks for putting us on to it. As for the others, I have no idea where they have come from. So let’s thank the big, bad cyberspace. Or whatever.

    Love the original, and a lot of the remixes I’ve been hearing are awesome. I think one of my fave tracks off the album is Helena beat, sweet video, too

    • I’m really feeling Helena Beat too… Hard to get away from it as it’s on heavy radio rotation at the moment. Have you heard the Lo Fi Fnk remix by the way? It’s a good ‘un too
