En 2007, Michael Angelakos, un chico del Cambridge de Massachussets, escribió unas canciones para su novia. Las canciones se convirtieron en un éxito y aquel chico que había compuesto en solitario un álbum completo en su casa, con sus pocos medios, acabó danto un concierto en el Berklee College of Music de Boston. Y en aquel concierto se produjo la magia en la que varios estudiantes se unirían a él para desarrollar su música. La formación, con el nombre de Passion Pit, ha publicado tres discos, Chunk of Change en el 2008, con los temas compuestos por Angelakos para su novia, Manners en el 2009 y Gossamer este mismo verano y que incluye el Take a Walk que pudes degustar aquí y ahora. Passion Pit es también el título de una película (porno) de Traci Lords, pero al parecer ellos no lo sabían cuando lo eligieron…

All these kind of places
Make it seem like it’s been ages
Tommorrow some new building will scrape the sky
I love this country dearly
I can feel the ladder clearly
But I never thought I’d be alone to try

Once I was outside Penn station
Selling red and white carnations
We were still alone
My wife and I
Before we marry, save my money
Brought my dear wife over
Now I work to bring my family state side

But off the boat they stayed a while and
Scattered across the coast
Once a year I’ll see them for a week or so at most 
I took a walk

Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh

Practice isn’t perfect
But the market cuts the loss
I remind myself that times could be much worse
My wife won’t ask me questions
There’s not so much to ask
And she’ll never flaunt around an empty purse

Once my mother-in-law came
Just to stay a couple nights
And decided she would stay the rest of her life
I watch my little children
Play some board game in the kitchen
And I sit and pray they never feel my strife

But then my partner called to say the pension funds were gone
He made some bad investments
Now the acounts are overdrawn

I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh

Honey it’s your son I think I borrowed just too much
We had taxes we had bills
We had a lifestyle to front
And tonight I swear I’ll come home
And we’ll make love like we’re young
And tomorrow you’ll cook dinner
For the neighbors and their kids
We could rip apart those socialists
and all their damn taxes
You’ll see I am no criminal
I’m down on both bad knees
I’m just too much a coward
to admit when I’m in need

I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh
I took a walk
Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk
Take a walk, oh-oh-oh-oh
