vinyl shopping: passion pit – gossamer

i’ve always liked passion pit – never enough to buy an album, but enough to enjoy their tunes if they happened to be playing.  they were another band that played at osheaga (yes, the lineup was amazing) and i knew i needed to buy their newest album, gossamer, after really enjoying their performance.

the album starts off with “take a walk” which has has an intensely catchy chorus; you’ve probably heard it on the radio or perhaps on a taco bell commercial.  the rest of the album has that same energetic vibe and lush, full sound.  it feels more mature than their debut, manners, and more accessible as well.  recommended if you like the electro-indie-dancy sound.  kind of like the arcade fire but more synthesized.  highly recommended.
