Massachusetts electro-pop band Passion Pit was formed somewhat unofficially, when frontman Michael Angelakos wrote and performed a series of songs (which were later released as the Chunk of Change EP) on his laptop as a Valentine’s present to his girlfriend. Shortly thereafter, the band’s debut full-length album Manners garnered widespread accolades following its 2009 release. Fans of the band can stream Gossamer, Passion Pit’s highly anticipated sophomore album in its entirety from HYPETRAK, well ahead of its July 24 release date. Also don’t forget to check out the video for the album’s bouncy first single “Take a Walk,” before you put in your pre-order at iTunes.
