Passion Pit and Opinions on Shamir

Passion Pit and Opinions on Shamir

Passion Pit first broke through via MySpace with its danceable electronic sound. But beneath the bright synth-pop are often tortured lyrics about frontman Michael Angelakos’s struggle with manic depression. Angelakos joins hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot for a stripped-down performance and frank conversation about his illness. Then, they review the debut record from genre-defying singer Shamir.
