Passion Pit - "I'll Be Alright"
Well, the Pit are back with another indie-pop anthem this summer. "I'll Be Alright" follows closely in the path set so strongly by their previous efforts. Maximalist production serves as the foundation of Angelakos's sweet vocals, serious pop hooks dance around pseudo electronic breakdowns. All in all, another great offering; definitely worth a listen.
Berlin police officers have been banned from wearing their favorite designer duds. Yep, that’s right – such names as Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, ACAB, Alpha Industries, Consdaple, Lonsdale, Pit Bull, Outlaw, Troublemaker and Thor Steinar have all been ‘outlawed’ so to speak.
Why might you ask? According to authorities, such labels are apparently popular among neo-Nazis with right-wing extremist views - which disciplinary action is taken against anyone with such ideologies. With the new rule in effect there has been an outpouring of negative press pegged to the say so. Union reps say that undercover officers will not feel as safe and feel they are surely at risk as they will not be doning such wears as those of the neo-Nazi groups. Furthermore, while Thor Steiner is strongly associated with these groups, both Fred Perry and Ben Sherman have spoken out about their clear efforts to distance themselves from such types.
