For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

As I've alluded to before in previous posts, Passion Pit's 2009 Manners is one of my favorite albums of all-time. It may not be because of superior songwriting or mind-blowing craftsmanship, but at the time it was one of the records that launched my interest in music. It has a special place in my heart. As such the days leading up to July 24th and the release of their new LP Gossamer have been filled with equal amounts anxiety and excitement. How could they possibly follow up on their success? I was trying to prepare myself for disappointment. Yet the two singles "Take a Walk" and "I'll Be Alright" surprised me. They were new, fresh, and innovative...exactly what I've been hoping for. To add on to that list, their newest single "Constant Conversations" pushes the envelope even further with some R&B and soul influence. Nothing what I expected to hear from them, but I'm still feeling the same reward as in the past. Stream "Constant Conversations" below, and get pumped for July 24th!
