Passion Pit — Gossamer
See, the fucked up thing about Passion Pit is that you couldn't really say you thought they were terrible this year without coming off like sort of an asshole, thanks to that totally overblown Pitchfork story about lead singer Michael Angelakos's struggles with depression. The piece just happened to be timed perfectly with the release of the band's new album, which is a lightweight little electro-pop record with lyrics that want very badly to be insightful but simply are not. Kudos to these guys, though, for a really great spread in that Brooks Brothers catalog.
