Passion Pit, "Manners" (Frenchkiss)
For much of the country, May is the month to shed some clothes and start dancing outdoors. Passion Pit, a five-piece from Boston, provides the perfect soundtrack to this transitory stage on its debut full-length "Manners," with wacky synths, neon-colored love songs and big pop beats. Remember how MGMT was last summer's dance breakout? Prepare to meet your match. Hear a full stream here.
