I’m a little ho-hum towards them. Noise is what I sometimes hear. Then again, everyone exclaims “SEE THEM LIVE!” which is a hard thing to say because let’s face it, about 64.5% of the bands today aren’t worth very much live.

“Gossamer” is due out on the 24th of July. If you’re a rabid fan, then get excited. If you’re new to Passion Pit, then keep an open mind and give them a listen…
