Amazon's Selling the Passion Pit Record for $2.99 Today
Do you like falsetto? Beards? And synths? Lots and lots of synths? Does the phrase "Michael McDonald of our time" fill you with delight? Ignore those pithy rhetorical questions and avail thyself of Passion Pit's Manners, for my money the #2 pure pop record of '09 (more on #1 later), available on Amazon MP3 today only for three lousy bucks. "Eyes as Candles" is the jam; it makes fine accompaniment to Cristina Black's Voice piece on the somewhat tumultuous recording process. ("I remember saying, 'I'm about to kill you motherfuckers.'") Enjoy.
