Los Angeles’ Foster The People made Radar Band Of The Week back in September 2010, mostly down to these two massive pop hits.
The latter ‘Houdini’ finally got released this week, just in time for some summer shows kicked off by an appearance at next month’s Great Escape and a show at Kings College on 17th May. Here’s a free mix of the track from prolific knob-twiddlers RAC.
The Horn The Hunt, meanwhile, have brightened up somewhat. Back in December we posted the Leeds duo’s ‘Raptor’, a dark and brooding piece of tribal electronica, but this new track ‘Paris’ bounces with more flippant synths and even a rap at one point. It’s taken from their second album, ‘Depressur Jolie’, released through White Label Music on 23 May 2011.
