Passion Pit/Bloc Party/The Shins at Osheaga - 8/5/12
Leadoff "Take a Walk" set Angelakos in motion, his vocals wandering octaves. Similarly, the ascending "Moth's Wings" grew from its telltale jangly strands to a sonorous sing-along and the aforementioned "Carried Away" juxtaposed driving synths with a stickier-than-cotton-candy vocal hook.Day 3 of Osheaga also included sets by The Shins, Bloc Party, The Black Keys, Metric, Santigold, and many others.
Cuts from the excellent Gossamer fared well, though old faves "Little Secrets" and "Sleephyhead" pushed the gig over the top with wet punters writhing under ponchos.
