After succumbing to the dreaded sophomore slump, Foster the People redeem themselves with Sacred Hearts Club. The album has the essence of the debut Torches, with the band’s signature synth sound and mellow vocals, but now throws in some ‘60s psychedelics. Standout tracks “Doing It For the Money” and “Sit Next To Me” have whimsical lyrics and catchy melodies. The band does occasionally mix things up; take for instance, “Loyal Like Sid & Nancy,” an absurdly loud electronic mix. Yet as a whole, Sacred Hearts Club is a welcomed step in the right direction.
Released by: Columbia Records
Producer: Josh Abraham, Oligee, Isom Innis, and Mark Foster
