ok I’ve listened to “Better Things” like a dozen times since the first listen to Chunk of Change. but I still don’t really like the rest. yet.

I tried to find a video to post but just ended up watching Youtube videos of high-school kids recording themselves driving to the mall.

but better things are coming! (get it?)

albums: Chunk of Change

Finally got around to listening to Passion Pit’s “Chunk of Change” EP and was, well, not that impressed. I know everyone’s been abuzz but really? Sure, “Sleepyhead” is pretty engaging and I like “Better Things” decently. Overall, though, it’s just an ok record. I guess falsetto vocals just aren’t my thing. And they’re cute little Brooklyn hipsters and all but just not really cutting it. I could get their sound by playing Cut Copy and Of Montreal and a Casio keyboard at the same time.

Maybe it just takes a couple of listens? I don’t know. I think it’s the vocals.
