New Music: Passion Pit – “Lifted Up (1985)”

16 Feb

One of the albums I’m most excited about in 2015 is Kindred from Passion Pit and today the band released the single “Lifted Up (1985).” As a follow-up to the acclaimed albums Gossamer and Manners, Kindred will be released on April 21 with heavy anticipation from starving fans.  Plus the band begins touring next month playing a handful of festivals and what I suspect will soon follow, an announcement for a summer/fall tour too.

Five For Friday: Passion Pit, The Gaslight Anthem, Slightly Stoopid, Firefly, Guest Blogging

20 Jul

Check it out.  I’m trying something new at DoYouHearTheMusic.com with a Five For Friday post.  The Triple F is five nuggets of musical goodness to get you through the weekend.  In other words, the soundtrack to your weekend begins right here!

  1. Passion Pit – yes some “mental health” issues of Michael Angelakos have forced the band to cancel some July dates but next week their new album Gossamer drops and boy oh boy should you be excited.  If you haven’t yet given a listen, hop on over to NPR to stream the album.
  2. The Gaslight Anthem – the Jersey Boys are back with another rocking album, Handwritten, which will also be released next Tuesday. Their fourth album may very well prove to be their best as the fellas once again bring that Springsteenesque rock and roll but with a more refined conviction.  This album can also be streamed via NPR, HERE.
  3. Slightly Stoopid – Miles and Kyle are back with “Top of the World,” the title track off their seventh studio album which drops August 14, 2012.  Give a listen HERE.
  4. Firefly Music Festival in Delaware began today and you better believe if I still lived on the east coast, I would be there right now.  Fantastic line-up which includes headliners The Killers and The Black Keys as well as some of my favorites, Michael Franti, Allen Stone, Lupe Fiasco, GROUPLOVE, Walk The Moon, CULTS, The Head and The Heart.
  5. Earlier this week I had the opportunity to guest blog for my friend Dayna Roselli.  Check out the post HERE.
