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.

Passion Pit

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.
