Passion Pit - Little Secrets

I think these guys like the 80's... but do the 80's like them?? Ponder on that a while as you take in their smooth synth jams and ironic drum machines:



They pull off one of my favorite compositional tricks on that tune: wherein you start the lead line solo so your ear naturally finds a downbeat in it. Then you bring in the whole backbeat to show that in fact the lead is syncopated and the downbeat you found naturally is actually the upbeat. It never fails to tickle my brain.
