Foster the People's much anticipated followup

Remember the first time you heard Foster the People talk about all the young kids with their "Pumped Up Kicks"? It was the kind of song you just couldn't shake even after learning about the song's grim subject matter. The heady pop rockers from L.A. are back with a new tune and an upcoming new album. They enter the chart in the very solid number 14 position with "Coming of Age." Here's a cool one-man-band cover of the tune. Check it out.

And if you've forgotten about those "Pumped Up Kicks," here's a little Foster the People refresher.
