Foster the People Preview

So it’s only 45 seconds long, but that’s all we really need right? It’s enough for us to know that this track along with the rest of the album is going to be amazing. I can’t wait for this band to return and to see them live again! Mark Foster, what a babe.

Foster the People to Release New Album in 2014

It’s been almost three years since we’ve had a new album from Foster the People and either I enjoy their music a lot and have missed them so or this is just unusual for any band to wait this long for another release. They’ve made it clear that they wanted to be worth the wait. After a successful debut album and laying low from touring, the band has left fans guessing as to when or if they would ever make a return. I’m thrilled to announce tonight that Foster the People has released some word on their whereabouts and it looks like we’ll be getting a new album in 2014 – early 2014 to be specific and a new single in January!

“It’s not the record that people are gonna expect us to release second. It’s definitely an evolution for us, and it’s a more polarizing record for us, so I’m excited to see how it’s received, for better or worse,” Foster told Rolling Stone.

From what it sounds like, it looks like Mark Foster will be switching things up for this second album and holding back on the electronics that are so consistent throughout Torches.

“I went into it wanting to do something more organic and human, because the first record was so electronic and synthetic – in a cool way, I’m not putting it down, that’s just what it was,” Foster said. “So this record, I wanted to make something more human and let the songs breathe and grow and turn and take left turns and not come back if they want to. It’s a brave record.”

Music Research Up In Here

I’m working on a snazzy little preview for this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party happening next weekend so I thought I’d take you along for the ride.

Here’s what I’m listening to for some inspiration:

Commentary: Grammys 2012

  • Did anyone see Bruno Mars’ silly tantrum backstage after Adele won for best pop vocalist?
  • Chris Brown. Quit your lip synching or gtfo the stage.
  • I don’t think I could ever get sick of The Foo Fighters.
  • I actually enjoyed Dave Grohl’s speech and appreciate him for voicing his opinion, but  it’s a shame they cut him off…
  • I could’ve sworn I saw a twinkle in Mark Foster’s eye when he was singing The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice.” My heart melted because it felt like he was just singing straight to me.
  • John Legend grooving to The Beach Boys was also quite adorable.
  • The Beach Boys are looking and sounding pretty great for their age! It feels like just yesterday I was watching them on that one episode of Full House.
  • Nope Chris Brown, we don’t have to forgive you. The Grammy’s can put you in our faces all they want, but I’m not budging.
  • Even though it wasn’t well received, I loved Taylor Swift’s dress during her performance of “Mean.” Now if I could only find out who the designer was…
  • Neil Patrick Harris is a babe.
  • I am still amazed by Katy Perry every time I hear anything about her and her music. Does anyone remember the poor review I gave her nearly two years ago? She’s grown as an artist definitely, but I’m not taking back anything I said. Her new song has potential for being the new girl anthem of 2012 though.
  • Adele SLAYED w/ her performance!
  • Bon Iver for Best New Artist – YAY! Great speech.
  • Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney Houston: Flawless
  • Nicki Minaj’s performance is not as family-friendly as I thought it would be. It was downright terrifying.
  • Adele is also the loveliest human being ever.  What a doll! She totally deserved all of her awards tonight.
  • (and none for Lady Gaga – sad day)


On an important related note, this HelloGiggles post about why people shouldn’t be okay with Chris Brown performing at the Grammy’s is quite insightful. I’ve had a similar opinion for awhile, but usually when I talk about that I make jabs at his performance and the more obvious scandal. This writer, however, has got some pretty solid facts and it is worth reading. And not to start something controversial, but the reason why that HelloGiggles post is mentioned on Yow Yow is so we can avoid things like this. It’s important for all of us to remember that there’s a border between a play on words or a play off pop culture, but this is not one of those times. It’s not cute anymore especially when it involves Chris Brown. Typing things like this out as a tweet is not the same as feeling the same way or wanting to be in that situation. Not being able to tell the difference between these things frightens me and makes me fear for the safety of other young women that have this notion in their head that it is okay to say these things.

A Wedding With Hipster Elements

This was such a wonderful wedding video to wake up to this morning! Aqua Vivus Productions did a great job at capturing such a special day for Ryan and Jane.

I can’t leave this post without mentioning a few of my favorite details – Jane is wearing the gorgeous Burnished Organza Gown from the BHLDN collection and the background music of Foster the People’s “I Would Do Anything For You” was refreshing and perfectly modern. I loved it!

Favorite Event of the Year: Capitol Hill Block Party 2011

Two out of three days was just enough to make this festival not only the highlight of my summer, but the most memorable moment of the year. Who can turn down a weekend of great company, amazing live performances, free goodies, front row at Cults, stellar weather and meal breaks at all of my favorite restaurants just outside of the gates? You can’t.

Runner Up: Girl Talk at the Showbox SODO and being on stage!
