Watch: Passion Pit Doc 'Hello Everywhere' From 'I Am Trying To Break Your Heart' Director Sam Jones

Do you like Passion Pit? Do you like tacos? Congratulations, you’re a member of the human race. But congratulations also because we have a documentary about them for you! Passion Pit, that is, but it was funded by Taco Bell, for whom Passion Pit recently soundtracked a commercial. Because nothing says “strip mall tortillas” like upbeat indie-pop.  

The folks over at Pitchfork pointed this one out to us: apparently they sometimes have stuff about music on their website, or something. Anyhow, the 50-minute doc was directed by Sam Jones, who 10 years ago made the Wilco documentary “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,” but who hasn’t been heard from since. This piece showcases their recent SXSW performance, alongside smaller L.A. group Wildcat! Wildcat!, and also features interviews with the band, particularly frontman Michael Angelakos, who is not really as upbeat as his music suggests: the doc chronicles some of the band’s recent troubles as well as showcasing their near-manic performances. Grab a taco and give it a look.

Meter, you're a fucking idiot and have no idea what you're talking about. Sounds like you heard some bullshit and come on here thinking your heresy's gonna be taken seriously, douchebag.


"Do you like Passion Pit?… Congratulations, you're a member of the human race."

what world is this writer living in? this music garbage. Taco Bell??? get these morons off this website.


Michael Angelakos is a self centered shithead who uses his "illness" as a badge to be a bastard to the people around him. Then he likes to tell sweeping, dramatic stories about how he almost took his life this time or that because being an artist is so damn hard. I'm not saying the guy isn't depressed or bi-polar, but for someone who's truly hurting, he surely likes to throw around all of his darkest demons as much publicity as it will get him. That being said, Passion Pit might be a better live band if his bandmates didn't hate his guts.
