Electronic Tunes on the Brain

Filed under: Music Genres — Hope on July 28, 2009 @ 2:09 am

So I’m only like a year and a half out of the loop, but I’m just discovering Passion Pit for the first time tonight. They apparently formed in late 2007, but it took about a year for them to release their popular EP titled “Chunk of Change”. I guess I’m not toooo behind though, because they just released their first full length album, “Manners” in May of this year (2009). If you have also been out of the loop…just f.y.i. they are an American electronic band. I heard their song “Better Things” on my manager’s ipod at work tonight and I totally dug it, so I jotted the artist and song down. It’s such a fun song, one that makes me want to dance. It’s extremely catchy. So anyway, when I got home tonight I listened to it on YouTube and then checked out their song “Sleepyhead” and realized I have in fact heard them before, because I recognized that song…and yeuup… I dig it.  Then I checked out their song “The Reeling” and I’m pretty sure I heard it playing the other night at the popular East Hampton club, Lily Pond. These songs are all on their newest album, which can also be heard on their website, www.passionpitmusic.com.

I’m also very behind on the British Electropop band Hot Chip. They are a bit similar to Passion Pit. I’m pretty sure if you know them you’ve heard their popular song, “Shake a Fist” and I’m also pretty sure that if you haven’t heard it already you definitely should …that is of course only if you like fun things. “In the Privacy of Our Love” is a nice slow tune by them as well. It’s a very unique tune.

Another cool song I enjoyed dancing to at Lily Pond was the remake of Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round”, which is called “Right Round”, re-done by the rap artist Flo Rida featuring Kesha. I know this has been out for a hot second as well. I’ve always loved the original version of this song, but the remix is actually pretty errrrrrsome. And of course the d.j. took a spin on Lady GaGa’s popular hit “Poker Face”, good stuff.

I’m also currently digging on the band MGMT, especially their hit “Electric Feel”. I’m stoked because I get to see them perform this Sunday, along with Coldplay (most likely my absolute favorite band of all time) and several other bands at the All Points West Music Festival in Jersey City. I can’t wait and I will def. give you an update!
