Song of the Day: "Call It What You Want" by Foster the People

Please be patient with me if my song of the day preferences seem heavy on Foster the People lately.

It's just that the genius of Mark Foster—whom I had the pleasure of seeing in concert about a year-and-a-half-ago—is newly emphasized to me with every listen.

His music is funky, weird, witty and, on occasion, profound and beautiful. It's a true electronic wall of noise that, I sense, will forever sound futuristic. And FTP's videos are always interesting, albeit with moments that (spoiler alert) can be shocking or disturbing.

If you were wondering, Mark Foster is a Pisces. I have a habit of figuring out the astrological signs of everyone I admire.

I give you "Call It What You Want" by Foster the People."
