Passion Pit new single

Passion Pit released their first single — Take a Walk —  from their new album Gossamer not too long ago and it is going viral. This one deserves it.

Get ready to hit repeat.

For those not acquainted with the band, they are about the most unique electro, synth, dance, indie pop band out there today. Their music really does cover so many genres that it is hard to describe. But why bother, just savor every bit of it!

The new album, set to be out on July 23, is

Seemingly inspired by the changes in their life brought about by their debut album and international touring, ‘Gossamer’ is said to be a more direct songwriting affair. “On ‘Gossamer’ there is more of a dichotomy between the lyrics and the music” Angelakos said recently.

“You hear my lyrics more precisely which is something I was ready for. The lyrics on this album have a lot to say about what the last two years of my life have been troubled with”.

Oh, and the reason for their interesting band name is to pay tribute to drive-in theaters, because of their privacy and romantic allure for teenagers.


My first love = Sleepyhead. This song is awesome on so many levels that it always manages to get me high. Somehow their most popular song yet, from their 2009 album Manners, does not have an official music video. However, this very well should be it! Quite impressive for something done over the weekend.

Some more amazing stuff by them. They can set a party feel in a minute!

1. I’ve Got Your Number

2. Little Secrets

3. Eyes As Candles


Travel and dance

To travel and dance — anything more fun has to be dastardly.

14 months in the making, 42 countries, and a cast of thousands. We still don’t know Where the Hell is Matt! I’m sure he’s fine, he’s doing ads for Visa now.

In case you want to see the outtakes.

SPOILER: Read further after you’ve watched the video.

If you’re wondering how all the people joined him, then it was after the popularity of his first video that Stride gum took part. They both “networked” with the locals in each city  the next time he traveled (which Stride helped with) and arrange the place and time to meet. And everyone was so ready to shake a leg!

Never judge too quickly

See if you can help me solve this riddle:

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don’t point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?


Now a reminder to never judge too quickly. My favorite is the hospital bit.

Happy May.
