Both these bands are pretty big now. Passion Pit are bigger. Any fans?

A buddy of mine in NYC loves Passion Pit. They were playing last month at the HoB in Nola. Wanted to make it but it didn't work out.

Finally, a thread for uninspiring, drab techno-dribble.

I was digging the first one until the singing started and the spinning made me nauseous.

The second just sounded like recycled British Pop from the 80's.

Guess it just isn't my type of stuff.

Passion Pit are supporting Muse in October, looking forward to it.

Battles are one of my favorites.

Love love love Animal Collective. Don't care if they are a super-hyped, Pitchfork ordained group. They just make great albums.

I like Passion Pit pretty well. Several good tracks off their album.

Good call on Battles too. Atlas is amazing.

That Battles stuff is interesting.

Here is a very new band that I saw open for Yeasayer recently

Keepaway



And for those that prefer more lo-fi sounds

That Passion Pit song reminded me of this (I'm not trying to be a smartass - I think they really sound the same):

Been busy with Amon Tobin and Ratatat, but Passion Pit is fun.

I think that Animal Collective will be considered the best representative of what the indie movement will have ultimately produced. They make really fun, positive music that is arranged in an interesting way and that stands alone in terms of originality and the type of artistic expression that typifies music that lasts generations. Just like what happened with the Pixies, Animal Collective should leave behind them a string of of musicians in who they placed a muse and inspired to try something new.

Love the Pixies. Just don't hear much in this. But, I'm picky.

AC's two latest full length albums are probably two of the most important albums of this generation.

They make music like Brian Wilson would have made if you were to pluck him out of the Pet Sounds era and put him in New York circa mid-to-late 2000's.

The other thing that sets them apart is the Avey Tare - Panda Bear vocal combo. Two distinct vocal (and lyrical) styles that actually mesh perfectly on harmonies and make for great contrast from track to track.

passion pit did get big but it's easy come easy go these days. out of the two animal collective has a much better shot of sticking, although i really never fell in love with their music. passion pit is cool but after seeing them live i much prefer them.. not live.

MGMT just put out a new album that most of the kids seems to hate. as much as i think their first was better, i'm glad that they didn't try to duplicate Oracular Spectacular. Congratulations is a good album and probably a step in the right direction.

Oh, and on the minimal techno side of things, Plastikman has been resurrected. The guy performs from inside an LED cage and controls both audio and video simultaneously. Most of you are going to hate this but here it is anyway.

Not too big on either band myself.

Try The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart or King Khan And The Shrines on for size.

I enjoyed Passion Pit here in Austin at Stubb's BBQ. However, last night I saw Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and they put on the best show of 2010. Folk/bluegrass neo-psychadelic rock. Their frontman Alex is crazy eccentric and a real treat to watch perform. Tonight I met him at Blues on the Green (free show at Zilker Park) and he was super cool.

There are limitations to the traditional guitar that much of the NY music scene is leaving behind.

It sounds like the kind of music I would have tolerated being played in the car if the girl I was dating was hot enough.

Animal Collective have definitely been a bit over-hyped, but they are really good. They always have a handful of great songs on every album... But there's always some lackluster stuff, too. In my opinion, the best album to come out of that crew is Person Pitch (Panda Bear's second solo album). Never heard Passion Pit, but then again, I'm not able to keep up with new music as much as I'd like.

My favorite current indie band is Wolf Parade (crappy video and an old song, but what the hell - it still kicks ass):

Those into Syd era Floyd should really get into the Animal Collective stuff like this (I love the bridge through the ending of this one):


And this (where Paul Simon's Graceland meets Brian Wilson and Syd Barret on an acid trip):

Ok....I must officially be getting old and uncool.

I listened to most of these at work....and didn't like them.

When I got home, I decided to throw some dank in my vape and figured it might give me some different perspective.

Nope....I still don't like it.

I went it to with an open mind and wanted to like it, but it does nothing for me.

Pass.
