Passion Pit - Gossamer

Comes out July 24.

First single Take a Walk.



Sounds like he's dropped his vocals a bit, and it's not nearly as exciting as say Little Secrets, The Reeling, Sleepyhead or Folds in Your Hands.

Catchy though, and I'm still really excited for the album.

I've heard both deadmau5 and Passion Pit rumored for this year's free summer concert series in SLC, actually. We'll see, it get's announced in a few days. Beach House seems like the only "pretty much for sure" one at this point.

Hasn't really hit the mark for me, I'm afraid. Doesn't really exhibit any of the qualities that made Passion Pit stand out above other electropop acts a few years ago - this song could probably have been done by a lot of lesser bands. Still pretty good, but kind of a let down.

All that said, I'm sure it'll grow on me.

I third that opinion. It's weird that they would make something so lifeless and obvious when I doubt it would be too hard to replicate the formula from their last album.

Did you get the joke though? You said "hi cobbler" and I posted the deadmau5 song "Hi Friend" instead of simply writing "hi friend" in response. Very funny stuff.

Too much screwing around with vocal samples and other bullshit. The song itself is very solid though.

Pitchfork sometimes likes shit, Cobblepot. This is one of those times.

These guys are definitely album art-challenged.
