Passion Pit is set to launch “Carried Away,” the second single off their critically acclaimed album Gossamer.  Today the band released the track’s official music video directed by sibling-duo Brewer (Alt –J, Purity Ring, War on Drugs), starring actress Sophia Bush and Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos.  “The music video was shot in Los Angeles and tells the story of a love/hate relationship through a playful Godard- inspired narrative that follows the couple throughout their home,” explains director-duo Brewer.

Passion Pit fulfilled a dream last week by headlining to 14,000 people at Madison Square Garden. The band’s monumental day was captured in a  “Day in The Life” piece by Rolling Stone, who trailed Michael Angelakos as he prepared for the biggest sold-out show of the band’s career.  Following what Rolling Stone called a “tight and triumphant” performance at Madison Square Garden, the band returned to their hometown of Boston, MA for a sold-out performance at the 6,000 capacity Agganis Arena.  Eight months after the release ofGossamer, Passion Pit is completing their largest tour to date with upcoming performances in Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and more (see full list of dates below).  Passion Pit will additionally make festival appearances at Coachella, BUKU and Sweetlife.

2012 was a monumental year for Passion Pit, with their sophomore album Gossamerdebuting at #4 on the Billboard’s Top 200 and yielding Passion Pit’s first top 5 alternative single with “Take A Walk.”  Additionally, Passion Pit performed “Take A Walk” and debuted the band’s follow-up single “Carried Away”  on Saturday Night Live last fall.  With the momentum of a sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden already under their belt, 2013 promises to be another momentous year for Passion Pit.

ANR Release Brand New Song, “New Armor,” Bonus

Track on Stay Kids Deluxe Edition, Out

September 13th on 10k Islands

Click HERE to Stream/Download Free MP3 of “New Armor”

 ‘Stay Kids’ is a marvel of melodic majesty and cosmic funk…” The Guardian
“the driving beats of TV On The Radio blended with the psychedelic sweetness
of Passion Pit”
This morning, Miami’s psychedelic synth-pop duo ANR released the brand new track “New Armor.”  The song is the latest example of the group’s constant evolution as well as their prolific songwriting.  It begins with a lone acoustic guitar before falsetto vocals and lush, sparkling keyboards join the mix.  ANR’s reverb-laden vocals are anthemic and continue in the introspective, earnest direction of the previously released tracks from Stay Kids Deluxe Edition, their forthcoming album out September 13th on 10k Islands.
ANR consists of merely two members – Brian Robertson (Keys, Vocals) and Michael-John Hanock (Vocals, Drums) – but they create a powerful sound filled with layered melodies and bountiful hooks.  It has already earned the duo praise from RCRD LBL, The Fader,, and Nylon, among others, and have landed them shows with bands like Animal Collective, Neon Indian, No Age, and Fucked Up.  The band kicks off their North American tour later this month.

Grum – Through The Night (Remixes) (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2010 by dk

Released by: Heartbeats
Release/catalogue number: HEART007
Release date: Oct 4, 2010

Through The Night by Heartbeatsheartbeats
Choose an artist with wide-spread international press acclaim. A top-5 selling album in the US electronic music chart. A sell-out tour of the US with The Twelves. A second, sell-out tour of the States with a third already being scheduled. UK appearances confirmed at Creamfields, Get Loaded… and Rockness. Remix comissions from Lady Gaga, Axwell, Passion Pit, Marina & The Diamonds, Goldfrapp and more. A request to produce a track for the next B.O.B. album. Plus a poster campaign that became a national talking point. Choose an artist that achieves this in six short months. Choose Grum.

Graeme Shepherd aka Grum shouldn’t need any introduction. But with a list of credits like this amassed since the release of his last single, ‘Can’t Shake That Feeling’, in April, introductions are necessary.

Returning with his own brand of sun-kissed ‘cosmic-electro’, Grum proves once again that he cares little about the critiques. Serving only to the good-times with a release of the brilliant but carefree single, ‘Through The Night’.

Future disco donned out in stonewash and shoulder pads. ‘Through The Night’, unashamedly 80s, is as much a well-penned song – Hall & Oates anybody? – as it is big-room floorfiller; All vamped up synths, rising riffs and driving electro-bass.

Grum’s vivid 80s referencing in ‘Through The Night’ hasn’t gone unnoticed by the video production house, General Assembley, either. Brought in once again to make a Grum music video (GA also directed ‘Can’t Shake This Feeling’), Grum’s music has inspired a brilliantly realized and hilarious ‘Brookheimer/bromance’ pastiche, which premiered this week on Popjustice.

“Through The Night is your classic, rough and tumble bromance. That age old cop meets cop tale. We were aiming to more directly address some of the latent issues that seem to be at play in a lot of the overly macho “buddy” movies of the 80’s in which the men appeared to always be much closer to their partner on the force than to any of the women they’re purported to be dating. One part Bruckheimer/Bay, one part Michael Mann and Friedkin. Throw in a bit of Jeff Foxworthy for good measure and there you have it.”

A producer whose tracks frequently win support from the likes of Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw and Steve Smart to name a few, ‘Through The Night’ is another Grum master class in dance.

Released 4th October, ‘the original sits alongside a full club mix from Grum, the ‘Swiss Menergy’ Remix and a remix treatments from Tom De Neef.

Choose your day getting just that little bit better. Choose Grum.

Plus Move’s new EP + Free Passion Pit Remix and more

Plus Move returns with “Worthy” EP

***Free Download of EP Track “Ruins ”***

***Free Download of Passion Pit “Little Secrets (Plus Move Remix) ”***

“Easily the most soulful and funky remix we have ever had the honor of receiving.
Very Plus Move = Very Tasteful.” — Passion Pit

Council Partners Entertainment, dba the council
***Release Date: July 13, 2010***
After years of pounding at the backstage door, it’s pretty much official: dance music is the new punk rock. CBGBs is no more, and guitars are swiftly being eclipsed by laptops, but the DIY aesthetic is alive and well. So it’s only fitting that the future of American dance music should emerge in the form of two New England Art Institute grads, Josh Shifrin and Paul Mihailoff, who left behind their punk rock and hip-hop pasts to form Plus Move, an electronic act obsessed with the future. And for good reason – they’ve been there.

“It’s kind of weird how we got into this,” Mihailoff admits, recalling a time back in Boston before they learned the art of time travel. Both he and Shifrin were playing in rock bands, with their only common thread was a shared interest in Radiohead. “I was actually into producing hip-hop beats when we first met, and I threw Daft Punk in the same category as the bland, repetitive, four-on-the-floor stuff that I couldn’t get into. But once I understood the energy behind it, I started listening to all the other French producers.”

Plus Move got everyone’s attention when they leaked their bootleg remix of Justice’s funk-squelch anthem “D.A.N.C.E” to some of their favorite music blogs back in the summer of 2007. “We first heard the song as a radio rip,” Shifrin recalls. “It wasn’t even the full song or the final version, but we fell in love with it and immediately chopped the shit out of the track to get rid of the radio noise, re-worked it completely and sent it back out to every blog that we liked. Before we knew it, we were getting emails from people all over the world.”

After releasing the 2099 EP in 2008, Plus Move are back and on FIRE. In addition to the release of “Worthy,” plans include the release of “Just Me” EP and a maxi single to set up the new full-length album due for a fall release. Check this shit out and wear it down!
