More Info:

Kindred, is the new album from Passion Pit. Kindred was written by Passion Pit creative force and frontman Michael Angelakos and recorded in New York City. The album was produced by Angelakos alongside longtime collaborators and co-producers Chris Zane and Alex Aldi, as well as Benny Blanco. Kindred follows Passion Pit's 2012 hit Gossamer, which found the band selling out Madison Square Garden, appearing on "Saturday Night Live" and a special "Live on Letterman" performance, and playing at major festivals including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Outside Lands and more.

Reviews:

Angelakos' songwriting process for Passion Pit has always been to filter and reshape. Many sounds on Kindred that one would assume are synths are Angelakos' voice, manipulated by computers and pedals. Angelakos frequently repurposes sound: using top 40 signifiers for outré ends, crushing weird natural and synthetic detritus together into pop (Brent Katz, liner notes, 2015).

Angelakos' recent collaborations include tracks with Skrillex and Madeon.
