Song of the Day 7/24/08: Passion Pit - Sleepyhead
In a parallel universe, a just-okay band is about to open a gig for someone pretty famous, like Modest Mouse or The Shins. Minutes before this show, you kidnap this band and throw them in the back of an unmarked white van. On the way, you blindfold and handcuff them, and force-feed them triple-dipped acid tablets. When they're about to start tripping, you lock them inside a Japanese photobooth (the kind that superimposes sparkling stars over the pictures) and don't let them out until they write and record a song. They have unlimited quarters to dick around with, but eventually they set to their instruments. Passion Pit is that band and "Sleepyhead" is the result, and after the photobooth incident, their music will never sound the same.
