Like Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks," some songs seem to bounce around, just under the surface, before they really catch on. It looks like "Sweater Weather" is another one. It was released almost a year ago by a California band called The Neighbourhood, and it -- and the band -- are making all the right moves: sold out NYC show, appearing at Coachella, song used on TV, etc. Not sure why they've used the British spelling for their name, but suppose it's just another aspect of their somewhat over-calculated, eccentricity. Catchy song, though, and they'll probably be unavoidable in 2013.
