So, you’re thinking that the indie-pop trio Foster The People—what with their alterna-chart topper about Nike Airs (we think)—are one of those massive-sarcastic-air-quote “indie” un-massive-sarcastic-air-quote bands. Of course, it’s also possible that these talented Californians actually deserve all their success and radio-play because they’re, you know, talented Californians. I mean, we’re not going to just ask you to take our word for it (this time). I’m sure someone has the deets you need to se—oh. Hello, Info Bracket. Nice shoes.
