iTunes Editors’ Notes

Initially, frontman Michael Angelakos recorded the six songs that comprise 2008’s Chunk of Change EP as a one-man project to give his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. The gift became a group and Manners was released in 2009, overflowing with sweet, sticky, synthy good-time pop, punctuated by Angelakos’ endearing falsetto. “Make Light” opens with squealing keyboards and a pounding beat that sets the stage for an uplifting melody cleverly contrasted by dark and inward lyrics of painful self-examination. “Little Secrets” echoes Prince’s ‘80s keyboard funk before a choir of children pipe-in with an early-‘70s element reminiscent of Miss Abrams and The Strawberry Point Fourth Grade Class. Decades shift to the early-‘90s rave culture on “The Reeling,” which plays with a festive baggy-jeans whimsy not heard since Candyflip’s 1991 album Madstock. The nearly psychedelic “Sleepyhead” is the only number here imported from Chunk of Change and with its sped-up vocals, cartoonish synthesizers, four-on-the-floor beat and unpredictably catchy melodies, it’s the most original sounding song here.

Put this song on repeat while playing LittleBigPlant!! :D

AMAZING!! JUST SAW THEM IN CONCERT!

passion pit is absolutely amazing on recording, but their concert is one to remember. The lights are magical, the atmosphere is amazing, and the music is just phenomenal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!

A fair review.

While this album is different from the trash most modern artists put out, and is very interesting, it isn't one of the best albums I've ever heard. It keeps you happily listening, though. I'm definitely not saying it's bad.

I do have to say that seeing them live was better than the album, and it is EXTREMELY rare that I ever say that.
