Foster The People

Foster The People From 2011 As Their Career Kicked Off!

It's always interesting to revisit Cafe sessions from the time when artists' careers got started. No one knew then what we know now! That is the case with our Vintage Cafe today with Foster The People and their 2011 debut album. The interview was recorded right as "Pumped Up Kicks," their first hit kicked in. We’ll hear it, “Helena Beat” and others. Also find out where Mark Foster and this band came from in the LA music scene.
