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.
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.
Day 3 of Osheaga also included sets by The Shins, Bloc Party, The Black Keys, Metric, Santigold, and many others.
