Oh god damnit, I've heard that song and kind of enjoyed it. Yeah, that sounds like it should be a hit and ill be sick of it well before Sasquatch.
This is basically how I felt about Pumped up Kicks. It was catchy and inoffensive enough when it first started making the rounds in 2010, and Foster the People had about 300 listeners on last.fm. Then they blew up, it got played everywhere, and now I can't fucking stand it.
Capital Cities, Atlas Genius, Robert Delong, and Youngblood Hawke.
It's all about Dr. Garbanzouring out which band is on a major label and will be pushed on the radio hard.
Youngblood Hawke is on Republic which is a massive record label so they're definitely a good pick.
It took a bit of digging because they're trying to hide it but Capitol Cities is signed to Capitol Records (this is their copyright: "Lazy Hooks, LLC under exclusive license to Capitol Records. ").
Robert Delong is on Glassnote which is a record label that is great at getting their artists radio play but they tend to do it in a semi-grassroots way compared to the brute force that major labels use. They may end up having the staying power but I don't expect them to rule the airwaves by May.
But of course Atlas Genius is the obvious answer. Their debut comes out in like 2 weeks on Warner Bros.
So after doing this why do I get the feeling that Pea has already done this research and I'm over explaining his point?
Nice cbats/Pea. This is definitely a great breakdown. All of those bands are picking up steam...quickly! That Capital Cities song is the new Foster the People, and I hate it. I do, however, really enjoy Youngbloode Hawke's "We Come Running". It's too catchy for it's own good, similar to Fun.'s "We Are Young". I don't care how many times I hear that song I still love it.
EDIT: That Atlas Genius song also kick ass.
My bad, although, Atlas Sound is good as well.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
I usually end up buying one or two per fest when I really want a cold beer, but no matter how little I care about the money I just die a bit inside when I pay roughly 10x as much for beer vs. the beer I have back at camp.

I completely agree with Pea. There's nothing better than drinking that cold fresh beer when it's hot as shit, and you're not fucking walking back to camp for now. I used those big PBR's to drink half down then refill it up with my liquor I already came in with. Transformer Alcoholic in disguise.
