Monthly Music – Passion Pit

This week is E3 so, I really can’t do anything, but focus on video games. Here’s your monthly music. Recapping Belize should be back no later than Monday!

Passion Pit - Manners

These guys are the reason I like steering clear of music reviews and buzz about bands online. I love music and I had no idea Passion Pit was hyped into oblivion after their Chunk of Change EP. One my friends kept talking about them and I finally gave in and decided to give it a listen. Now, I can’t go a day without listening to the whole CD all the way through at least once. This album is summer, this album is fun. I can’t listen to ‘Little Secrets’ with out a huge grin on my face, ‘The Reeling’ is just an amazing song and the video is great and I’ve got future plans for ‘Swimming in the Flood’. I’ll admit the lead singer’s voice is high and can be shrill at times, but for me that’s a complement. I’ve got a thing for awkward voices. If you are looking for a great summer album, I can’t suggest better at the moment.

Monthly Music – Psapp

Psapp - Cosy in Rocket

They’re called Psapp (sap), and the genre is toytronica or experimental electronica. I am easily hooked in by songs used in commercials and shows and Cosy In Rocket came from the opening of Grey’s Anatomy. I love their music because it sounds like they are making stuff up on the fly and messing with all types of things to make music. It’s really fun and enjoyable to listen to.

Monthly Music – Ram Rider

Ram Rider - Portable Disco

Ram Rider - Portable Disco

So here’s what I’m obsessed with now. I’ve always been excited about international music (Japanese especially) and it looks like I’ve tumbled back hard onto it. I’ve also really been into Electronica quite a bit too. This album by DJ Ram Rider from Japan is excellent. most of the time when I run across Japanese Electronica it’s more of a synthesized voice by a female. Now I’m not knocking that, I do enjoy female vocalizations as much as male. The disc has a great mixture of upbeat tracks and a few slow ones, too. I personally enjoyed the final track of the CD. The mix is easily entertaining and I never had a problem relaxing at work and listening to the whole CD without skipping. Portable Disco was also released as a remix CD called Portable Disco 8-bit Edition featuring the amazing YMCK. If interested check out the links below to grab it yourself!
