Passion Pit+Best Coast
Even though Manners once steamrolled every other dance-friendly indie-pop record on the market, moving to Columbia Records means thatstrictly speakingPassion Pit is now just pop. The wider exposure this brings is well deserved: Last year's hazy Gossamer weaves its vocals and keyboards together so tenderly only to promptly squish them both with more aggressive percussion, and as such works as well for high-volume dancefloor applications as for intent headphone listening. Good luck doing both at the same time, though.
