all the other kids with the pumped up kicks / you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun

los angeles’ foster the people‘s pumped up kicks became a familiar summer soundtrack in the background while you were jetsetting to foreign islands, drinking pina coladas, laying underneath the sunshine, swimming in a fancy pool, feeling the heat, riding your bicycle, laughing with friends, and dreaming to the nighttime’s cool warm breezes. although previously released in september 2010 to modern rock radio stations, it was first thought of as a sleeper hit without too much recognition. happily now almost a year later, pumped up kicks quickly grew to be a constant part of billboard’s alternative top number one singles of the summer of 2011.

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
