Released: Apr 2010
Cambridge, Mass.'s Passion Pit haven't learned to hold back, but that's partly what makes their brand of ebullient, over-the-top electronic pop stand apart from their peers'. Singer Michael Angelakos' falsetto lends a sunny luster to songs awash in buzzing synths and chiming guitars; trembling theremins and blustery children's choirs only add to the feeling of standing on a sun-drenched hilltop with the wind in your face and an eternity of youth stretching out before you. Part Sunny Day Real Estate, part Hot Chip -- and pure, immersive pop pleasure.
