Song of the Day: 'Lifted Up (1985)' by Passion Pit

People have been after me for years to give the '80s-influenced band Passion Pit a chance -- "They sound like something YOU'D love!" -- but now that they have 1985 in the title, I suppose I have no choice. 

That's Matthew Risch on the right, aka Dom and Lynn's hot-tub threeway partner

Why they think 1985 "was a good year" is anyone's guess -- as Chris Mason Johnson's low-key film, "Test," set in San Francisco's dance community circa 1985 reminds us, it was a time of great fear and sadness -- but frontman Michael Angelakos was born in 1987, so I'm willing to cut them some slack.
