Ok so Passion Pit just released their new album, Gossamer, on Tuesday. There’s an incredible cover story about the lead, Michael Angelakos on Pitchfork about his struggles with mental health. I feel like having read a little bit about his story, I get this song so much more. If you’ve ever seen or heard any of his acoustic sets, you would know he’s absolutely amazing even without all the electronic beats and the falsetto. So I wanted to strip this song down to its bare elements. I can’t wait until he releases an acoustic album. Everyone will be blown away.
Ok I’m coming to grips with the fact that they can’t all be winners, but just getting into the practice of writing original songs is what I need.
