Passion Pit: "Constant Conversations"

Ever since Quiet is the New Loud indie bands have been tripping over themselves to sound both more ethereal and rarefied than the next guy. Gossamer, y'all, really? That's what Passion Pit are going for with their new album of the same name, but instead of wispy lack of substance we're treated to some genuine, hook-laden pop songcraft. PP were never really the second coming of My Bloody Valentine anyway. Still... that album cover could afford to be a little less Mexican Summer, no?
