#74 passion pit – sleepyhead

i have a simple way of going through my new music. once there’s a critical mass, i’ll shuffle them on an itunes playlist and just let it roll while i go about doing something else. it’s a natural filtration exercise, with the stronger material surfacing, leaving the residue to sink into obscurity. today, the song that stayed afloat was passion pit‘s “sleepyhead”, taken off the boston-based electro-pop band’s chunk of change ep, released just this week on frenchkiss records. the track is no sleepy affair, instead bursting with flavor and jumping from one idea to the next like a hyperactive child. in a short three minutes, you’ll be taken through an explosive journey of sped-up voices, thumping beats, kaleidoscopic synths and singalong party choruses. it’s a trip that promises much and delivers even more with its mind-boggling breadth and an underlying groove that goes way deep.
