Passion Pit, a fresh band founded in Cambridge Massachusetts, has only recently released their first full length album entitled Manners. Their style of music: a kind of happy pop that inspires one to dance. Incredibly upbeat and full of life, Passion Pit is just the right stuff to get us through these dreary economic times. Having gained much recognition with their EP Chunk of Change, the band found themselves an early hit first at Emerson College, the alma mater of band member Angelakos. Passion Pit went on to top The Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll as Best New Act, all happening within a few years time. This band carries with it a sense of ease in every song, as though the tracks were put together through simple artistry and not through months/years of unneeded toil and sacrifice. While listening to the Manners you have a sense that you should just be relaxing and having fun with this new band that would fall under the new electronica/synth altpop category of bands, which seem to be leading the trend this year in terms of good new music. It seems that bands such as MGMT, Passion Pit or the upcoming Vampire Weekend Ra Ra Riot collaboration Discovery, are on the cusp of this welcome upbeat movement in music today. With all of the bands mentioned you can hear a real the playful discovery as though what they ended up producing was a pleasant surprise even to them. To be sure this album is a must have for the summer months, all of those warm evenings would not be complete without a bit of Passion Pit to spice up your playlist. Best songs off of Manners, Little Secrets, The Reeling, Eyes As Candles.
