Just was wondering if anyone else is into them? Kinda obscure indie-electronic-ish band (hard to classify them!) that are definitely worth checking out! Extremely original and catchy! Can't wait to see them @ Terminal 5 in January!

    Sleepy Head is an awesome song. I dl'ed Manner but never listened to it. Think I'll go that now.

    I love them. The one song that got me hooked on them was "The Reeling" Manners is adecent album with songs like Sleepyhead, Little Secrets, and To Kingdom Come. Saw them over the summer in a hot ass "church" in philly. Kinda reminds me of MGMT or something like that.

    I usually don't like electronic music but these guys do it with drums and guitars. So maybe they're "electro-rock"??

    Manners is a kick ass album! Only bad song is Folds in Your Hands but the rest is superb.
    Top 3 tracks for me are Moth's Wings, Eyes as Candles, Let Your Love Grow Tall.

    Saw them in concert last night & they were incredible!! A short show, but a super-fun one, crowd was energetic & the whole band was on point, especially Michael! Would definitely see them again! Did anyone else happen to go?

    they're pretty big with the hipsters around here. heard them on the radio quite a bit.
    Beavis: All my friends are brown and red? What does that mean?
    Butthead: It means that his friends are like turds and that they like suck.
    Beavis: Heh heh. Oh yeah. Yeah! Get those spoons out of my face before I shove them up your butt!
    Butthead: Huh huh.

    The Reeling and Sleepyhead are cool songs. I think those are the only two songs I kept from them though. I hope I like atleast a couple of their new ones.
  • jervin007jervin007 Posts: 3,112
    They just played in Portland. I have only listened to a few of their songs, but I have to say I am not a fan of the lead singers voice. Kind of annoying.

    Hello all,

    On behalf of the band and myself, I would like to greatly apologize for the show cancelations. In order for me to ensure that there will be no further disruptions, I am going to take the time to work on improving my mental health. For now, I'd like to thank all of our fans for their understanding. I hope to see all of you very soon in a much different light.

    The tour page on our website currently reflects all upcoming tour dates.

    With love,
    Michael

    sucks, but hope he gets better. Suppose to play Firefly Festival this weekend. Still playing Made In America though :thumbup:

    I was expecting to be let down to be honest but surprisingly enjoyed the album a lot. When I first heard the single Take A Walk didn't really do anything for me, then it got stuck in my head. Besides that also dug Mirrored Sea and Carried Away.

    Take A Walk is the worst song on the album, yet it's the single and the opening track :? :lol:

    Now this is good POP music

    Damn I made this thread a while ago haha...

    But Passion Pit are back, new album Kindred out in April. pastemagazine.com/articles/2015/02/passion-pit-share-two-new-tracks-lifted-up-1985-an.html
    2 new singles, "Lifted Up (1985)" and "Where The Sky Hangs" which I'll post below. To be honest, they don't do much for me. That Paste article said they were the "most straightforward pop tunes" they've done, and I think that's a good description. Definitely the most "accessible," if that makes any sense. I hope better music is to come! I don't mind the songs, but they don't do much for me at all.

    Haven't heard much aside from two songs, I remember liking one and not really caring for the other. Happy I get to see them again at Mo Pop Festival this summer, though! It's always a fun live show.
