Pitchfork Media Forkcasts “Sleepyhead”

Paste Magazine : ” A lofty jenga tower of infectious synth riffs and bounce-happy beats”

The Features “Sleepyhead” Freeload & Feature :

Brooklyn Vegan : “Bring earplugs (if you’re not afraid to wear them). It was very loud (but good).”

Pitchfork Media : “Sleepyhead’ may not be sleepy, but it’s decidedly dreamy, a glistening array of woozy textures that call to mind both the atmospheric twee-scapes of A Sunny Day in Glasgow and the ecstatic seaside fantasias of Air France.”

Nylon : “passion pit is more groundbreaking than a stampede of obese elephants” : http:/

RCRD LBL On “Sleepyhead” :

Stereogum : “Scott and I swung into Pianos last night to check in with electropop outfit Passion Pit. And clearly, someone’s doing their work in that camp. The Boston band recently signed to Frenchkiss, and on the back of a mostly solid (and in the case of “You’ve Got My Number,” very addictive) EP Chunk Of Change, they just closed out a residency at Pianos in the LES.”

Spinner :

Boston electro-pop upstarts Passion Pit have a busy few weeks ahead of them. Fresh off the release of their Frenchkiss debut Chunk of Change, the band will be performing a whopping five times during the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC next week. Kicking things off with an appearance at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 21st, the band will then take the stage at Club NME at the Annex and the Fader Lounge on October 23rd, before performing at the Planetary showcase at Pianos on the 24th and toasting their busy schedule with a final performance at The Yard in Brooklyn on the 25th for After The Jump’s wrap-up BBQ. Full list of dates below.

In other news, the band premiered the video for lead single “Sleepyhead” on Pitchfork yesterday. As the write-up so accurately put it, “this beautiful video, directed by The Wilderness , matches the song’s collage-like construction, taking individual elements -a singer, handclaps, keyboards – and fusing them to rotating mechanical parts. With its absence of computer tricks – those are actual printed photos of Michael Angelakos’ face on that cube – the video captures the song’s rough, handmade charm.” What’s more, the band recently swung through AOL Spinner’s NYC studios with a performance of Chunk of Change standouts for Spinner’s Interface . Check out the new clip for “Sleepyhead” and the AOL  performances below.
