In a move that sets the bar way too high for a Valentines Day present, Michael Angelakis put together Passion Pit's debut EP Chunk of Change as a gift for his girlfriend. Although it's September, this EP saw release yesterday via Frenchkiss Records. Chunk of Change weaves together classic synth-backed pop and more dance floor ready tunes such as the above track "Sleepyhead." Well gents, get out that MacBook and get to work. Only a few months left till February. The EP is streaming now at Spinner and My Old Kentucky Blog. Definitely worth checking out.
Passion Pit is playing tonight at the Mercury Lounge in NYC with Sunset Rubdown and will be playing several dates with Yelle who put out one of my secretly favorite records of the year Pop Up.
