Brooklyn Vegan : “Bring earplugs (if you’re not afraid to wear them). It was very loud (but good).” http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2008/08/passion_pit_200.html

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.” http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/node/142111

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.” http://stereogum.com/archives/concert/passion-pit-pianos-nyc-82708_018011.html

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, and having just finished five frenzied-filled sold out shows at CMJ 2008, the band head out to the west coast for a slew of dates. Don’t miss them!

In other news, the band premiered the video for lead single “Sleepyhead” http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/download/146505-pitchforktv-passion-pit-sleepyhead-video-premiere on Pitchfork. As the write-up so accurately put it, “this beautiful video, directed by The Wilderness http://www.thewildernessinc.com , 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 http://www.spinner.com/2008/10/10/passion-pit-tell-their-tale-at-the-interface/ . Check out the new clip for “Sleepyhead” and the AOL performances below.
