Full disclosure, just posted a fairly less personal note about this over in Hotline: A few days spent down in Florida used to represent a complete disconnect from life here in Boston, until, you know, bands like Passion Pit started showing up in Palm Pixi commercials. Looks like "Sleepyhead" was tapped to push the new smartphone, and it was a trip hearing this shit after Thanksgiving dinner with the fam. Fucking hell, nice job, dudes.
Also, I definitely had a "moment" last night on the way back from Manchester Airport. Driving down I-93, listening to Dave Duncan's New England Product on FNX, Passion Pit's "Moth's Wings" started the show as I rolled through Medford, and as I approached-then-engaged the Zakim bridge and then the tunnel on the way towards the Mass Pike, hearing bands like Magic Magic and Televandals while staring at the Hub skyline really made me love this city even more. It was the best "welcome home" I've ever had. So good to be home. <3
