As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for January 2013, Passion Pit‘s Gossamer is on sale for only $5.00.
Planning a psychedelic-funk themed dance party? Well if you weren’t before you will be after hearing just a few tracks off of this record from the exciting Indie-Electro-Pop rockers. The album’s strength is its ability to blend the conventional and the weird, all while jumping genre’s faster than a Now That’s What I Call… compilation. The spectacular “Constant Conversations” is a spaced-out soul jam, but at its core, it’s a wonderful R&B tune. The same goes for the insane indie-art-pop of “I’ll Be Alright.” You may recognize the delightful lead single “Take A Walk” either from its constant airplay this past summer, or from one of several TV ads it is featured in. Gossamer will receive a lot of deserved praise for its spot on production, but the tremendous songwriting is what will help the record stand the test of time.
