Passion Pit is hot off its recent release Manners, and the Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ are riding high on It’s Blitz! so combining the two can only make for a stellar project.
That project is personified in today’s release of YYYs “Heads will Roll” a selection of four remixes of “Heads will Roll” off of It’s Blitz!
Considering it is a pretty spectacular song to start with, once Passion Pit gets its synth saturated hooks in it it makes for a must listen.
Also included are remixes by Tommie Sunshine, Little Vampire and James Iha. All good, but all fall short compared to the Passion Pit version.
While all have a similar sound, each has its own distinct beat and cadence to them. Although it’s hard to beat the original version.
The third annual Monolith Festival at Red Rocks two-day lineup this September includes headliners as Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MSTRKRFT, Doom and Colorado’s own The Pirate Signal.

While the Saturday headliner is still listed as a question mark, there are a number of big name bands already signed on including:
Method Man & Redman
The Dandy Warhols
