These four nerds on treadmills have staying power. Approved by Ira Glass and YouTube favorites for their music videos, 2010’s Of the Blue Color of the Sky was a welcome change from the band’s white boy funk. Digging into psychedelic signatures with great wordy wit, tracks such as “WTF?” and “This Too Shall Pass” showcase the melancholy side to the band’s viral phenomena. Live, they’re equivalent to an *NSYNC concert with matching dance moves, LED light costumes, and confetti blasts closing all the biggest numbers.
