iTunes Editors' Notes

After racking up some excitement with the MGMT-goes-to-Oz track “Sleepyhead” on Chunk of Change (that song is included here, like a cereal box surprise), expectations ran high for the first official full-length from Passion Pit. Manners doesn’t disappoint, although a fuller, orchestral indie rock sound slightly dominates the electro-pop sensibility at the core of their music. Layers of youthful, gleeful voices ride high above pianos, synths and guitars, and a brawnier backbeat prevails on dance-worthy tracks like the effervescent single “The Reeling” and the spritely “Moth’s Wings.” Michael Angelakos’ floating falsetto is driven as much by shiny horns as twinkling synth lines on “To Kingdom Come.” Sure, “Swimming in the Flood” shimmers with electronic ambience, and there are glassy, brash synths on “Little Secrets,” but this Boston quintet is plenty comfortable exhibiting both an unabashed love for joyful pop constructs and a cool and controlled electronic dance rhythm. Passion Pit is a gleaming example of indie rock cross breeding, and Manners will be hard to top by other purveyors of this particular hybrid.

Customer Reviews

Creative like a juicer

I have never heard of Passion Pit, but now I want to know more! This album is pretty ammazing. Very creative instrumentally and the falsetto vocals are finely tuned and display a unique use of the insturment of voice. I listen to a lot of different music and most of what I hear doesn't hit me with as much variety and beauty. It's nice to come accross a real work of art.

Strikingly Different!

Don't let the electronica or synth beats fool you, this is a pop album with major hooks and melodies. And its a great pop album at that. What makes Manners different is the overlay of complex sounds that make it a hodge podge of musical tastes, while the larger than life euphoric sounds come blazing through. Moth's Wings and Sleepyhead are perfect examples of this. I have never heard anything like this, it is absolutely infectious.

Amazing

Boston, Massachusetts-based Passion Pit began as a one-man project of singer and songwriter Michael Angelakos to produce a Valentine's Day gift for his girlfriend.

Eventually, Passion Pit became not only a vehicle for the romantic expressions of Angelakos' heart but a full-fledged band — at least for live gigs — and opened for a number of well-known artists,...
