That'd be cool. Hopefully tickets won't cost much, I'd consider it.

Incidentally, I think I like Manners a fair whack better than In Ghost Colours. A few too many boring, repetitive, average mid-tempo tracks on IGC.

I'd have to agree with that, though I like the high points on In Ghost Colours more than the high points of the PP album. Regardless, they're both fun.

Passion Pit is still $7.99 at Best Buys here in the US, great price if you're interested and haven't picked it up.

I'd have to disagree there. While I think Manners is solid, IGC is superior to it.

I agree with this wholeheartedly.

Thing about IGC for me is the strength of the first 4 tracks. Absolutely mindblowing.

I get paid Thursday, I'll be getting it then. I bought Chunk of Change in the mean time.

Awesome. I wanted something of a preview before I saw them at Lolla. Just a shame it'll involve improving Jimmy Fallon's ratings.

If so, he'll be laughing by himself, and the crowd will look confused and bored. ...you know, same as always for his show.

The only 2 redeeming things about his show are The Roots and the fact that he gets tech/video games guys on his shows on a regular basis.

Also, Paul Simon playing "Late in the Evening" with The Roots was off the fucking chain.

For those in the NY area, they are playing in Central Park with Phoenix on September 25 and 26. The first show is apparently sold out. The second could be a wonderful thing to do following U2 on 24-25 Sep...

I can't view Hulu at work, but the episode is there if you missed the show last night (like I did).

Passion Pit.
More like Shit Pit.


I just read through this whole thread for the first time. So did everybody get sick of Passion Pit or what? I confess I have listened to this damn record 6 million times over the last 5 months or so. I have never gotten tired of it. It makes me insanely happy every time I listen to it.

For me, it was more being disappointed with the album in relation to the highly enjoyable EP. But there is still plenty I like about the album, even if most of it is fluff. It's a fun listen, and that hasn't changed. And I do stand by my statement that it is a much lighter In Ghost Colours in that it's the most dancey album I've gotten into this year. But In Ghost Colours murders Manners. Murders. Knife crimes, even.

Their absolute failure as a live act in October didn't help my interest, either.
