The Rabbit

I am not certain if this release means a new album is forthcoming or if it is simply a sensational summer collaboration between Swedish natives, Miike Snow, and Stuart Price. I can only hope for both. Yay summer!

Passion Pit LIVE tonight.

Passion Pithas has really risen above themselves. They band’s first EP, Chunk of Change, certainly did them well but their latest full-length studio album, Manners, which was released in May has shot them in with the rest of the indie big kids. They’ve been remixed by Calvin Harris, Miike Snow, Neon Coyote and Sammy Bananas, and they themselves have remixed the likes of the YYYs and Dan Black. They’ve managed to get themselves onto the roster of nearly every major festival in both NA and Europe and have garnered nearly 2000 blog posts in the last 6 months! And those are just the ones monitored by Elbo.ws.

After two failed attempts, Passion Pit will return to Ottawa tonight to play at Zaphods. Its an early show and a really nice day out in the nation’s capital so there is no reason not to tie this one this on evening as the summer winds to a close in a mere three weeks!

Good News!

After a long celebratory weekend packed full of rummage sales and races, I am back! Also good news: Swedish trio Miike Snow, whose self titled album drops June 9 but is currently available on US Itunes, has been added to the Oseaga line up! The schedule for the 2-day jam fest in Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau, also featuring theĀ Beastie Boys, Coldplay, the Decemberists, Beast and Lykke Li, has yet to be released, which leads me to believe some other last minute acts are still to come.
