Passion Pit: Gossamer
Buy! - (Columbia)
The second album from this Cambridge, MA-based project led by singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Michael Angelakos is an even more massive-sounding set of buoyant, R&B-tinged electro-pop, with densely produced, hook-filled songs combining layers of bright neon synths and mostly uptempo rhythms with Angelakos’ soaring tenor (often breaking into a gorgeous falsetto) and sunny melodies contrasted with dark, mostly autobiographical lyrics about troubled relationships, mental illness and substance abuse. 7/27/2012 - Don Yates
