Passion Pit

Add Date: May 19

Artist: Passion Pit

Album: Manners

Label: Frenchkiss

Genre: Rock, synth pop

Comments: Super-happy synth, beats taken straight from '80s pop (and funk), and a lead singer who sings only in falsetto. Sounds like it should be a recipe for disaster. The thing is, though, it's just so damn catchy that I really can't say anything bad about the album. Passion Pit sails into very dangerous waters in combining so many dangerous elements, but they do it so well that we're all the better for it.
