WARRIOR

A while back I wrote about one musical mash-up in the form of The Goat Rodeo Sessions but this recent one by Mark Foster, Kimbra, and A-Trak is a bit different. After seeing Foster the People at Sasquatch Music Festival last year (they are great live), I felt inclined to like the song and luckily it didn’t disappoint. Sometimes when DJs collaborate with artists outside of their genre the outcome is too forced, underwhelming and really doesn’t work (ahem, Steve Aoki and River Cuomo). “Warrior,” though, keeps true to the indie pop high-energy sounds that FTP are known for but also allows for the distinct influences of Kimbra and A-Trak to shine through. I have a weekend of work ahead of me but I kind of just want to go for a drive down PCH with this song playing through the stereo instead.
