Edit: I just listened to some of EP today and it's awesome. The countdown begins.
Hailing from the non-Brooklyn city of Boston, Passion Pit was introduced to me by someone who sits a couple seats away from me every day and not by choice (Thanks, Nick!). I wish I could recall the exact words he used to describe Passion Pit, but all I remember is MGMT meets ... 5-6 other bands. The five-piece Passion Pit, led by Michael Angelakos, was recently picked up by Frenchkiss Records, home to The Dodos, Les Savy Fav, and The Hold Steady. They've also opened for Girl Talk, so they have something in common with Tay Zonday of "Chocolate Rain" fame. I haven't heard that much yet, but I'm curious to hear more.
Chunk of Change EP is due on September 16, and an LP is to be expected in early 2009.
