When I first heard this song on We Are Hunted, I listened to it on loop for the entire day. Do you know how many times that is possible? Too many. And I never got sick of it. The new Passion Pit album is fantastic and I cannot wait to see them at this year’s Bumbershoot (maybe even twice!) I’m excited to see them because this will be the first time, but also because I know that lead singer Michael Angelakos has been going through a tough time right now battling his bi-polar disorder and cancelling several shows to regain his strength again. Yow Yow! wishes him a speedy recovery!
Apparently, I missed a secret show with Passion Pit this evening in Seattle. Maybe I should have rsvp’ed to this email seven days ago when I received it…
It has been too long since the group has had a new album out and I cannot wait for “Gossamer” to be released July 24, 2012.
Here is the first single “Take A Walk” from the upcoming album and it’s great – as expected. Can’t wait to see them at this year’s Bumbershoot!
Subpop Records in Seattle recently signed Mister Heavenly, a band that apparently no one has ever heard of. I didn’t have much time to research them when the news hit yesterday, but this new blog post from The Stranger’s Line Out definitely got my attention.
Earlier this evening, Mister Heavenly opened for Passion Pit at the Moore Theater and will continue touring with the band for the next ten days. The band is made up of Nick Diamonds, (Islands/Unicorns) Honus Honus, (Man Man) and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse). Cut to tonight’s performance, the audience found Mr. Dreamboat Michael Cera playing bass on stage!
First of all, can we just take a second to appreciate the names of the band members. If I were unfamiliar with them at all, I would’ve thought that the band was going to be a big secret featuring all-star players. In a way, it kind of is. MICHAEL CERA. I can’t get over it, sorry.
News this morning could not be more exciting. [Hence why I’m pulling from news that happened last week.] At the V Festival, singer Michael Angelakos announced that they would be releasing a sophomore album this spring, “It’s gonna be a really fantastic, exciting, beautiful, gorgeous record,” he said. “An absolutely beautiful record. I’m so excited.” It’s not too late to jump on the band wagon, you can still start listening to their first album Manners until the new album comes out later next year.
My favorite songs from Manners:
The whole album is incredible.
If you’ve ever listened to the song “Alligator” by Tegan and Sara you would know that it is a damn good song. In fact, it’s so good that Tegan and Sara have decided to release a new album with that song remixed 17 times. What’s going to make this CD worthy of purchasing? Remixes will be done by none other than, Passion Pit, Holy Fuck, and Ra Ra Riot just to name a few. The exclusive album will be released through iTunes on March 30th. Tegan and Sara will be opening for Paramore this summer on the Honda Civic Tour.
These guys are so freakin’ cute! I’m almost sort of refusing to believe that they are just 15 and 18, because it’s…illegal, but knowing that they are makes their whole project so much more impressive. The two hail from Perth, Australia and even though they only have a couple songs out right now, this one has been blowing up all over blogs. The song is super catchy and reminds me a lot of Passion Pit and Friendly Fires.
These guys are kids. Their age puts them at that level, but their talent and drive is incredibly refreshing. It’s nice to know that people at their age can still have ambitions and can work so hard to make things happen for them. So congratulations to them on their success and a great hit song!
There’s nothing cuter than hearing a group of kids perform a rendition of a song. Prepare to be amazed by this choir singing Jay Z’s “Run This Town.” Note the girls’ in the crowd being all sassy.
To learn more about the PS22 chorus, check out their blog here where they’ve received praise from celebrites such as Ashton Kutcher, Beyonce and Lady Gaga. I can’t believe it’s THEM I’m hearing on Passion Pit’s song “The Reeling!”
