I’ll always answer a question about it if someone asks me. I’ll never say I don’t want to talk about it. Because most people honestly are just curious. And most people are not open about it so if we’re going to change things, if we’re going to see a shift in how we view mental health, you’ve got to make it as simple and flat as possible for people. I can’t be exasperated in that sense — of course, it’s kind of annoying, but it’s just as annoying as being asked anything else multiple times. Really it’s just a part of me. It’s just a part of what people know about me. People are like, “Oh, it’s the bipolar dude.” I mean, that is incredibly condescending in a certain way and reductive, but at the same time, we live in a headline culture and that’s just the way it’s gonna be. To be honest with you, there are a lot worse things I could be associated with. I’m happy to keep talking about mental health so long as I’m helping.”

It looks like Passion Pit is as huge a fan of Elohim as we are, as tough as it might be to match our level of appreciation of Elohim’s artistry and music. How can we tell? I’d say it’s pretty convincing evidence when Michael Angelakos records a cover of Elohim’s All That Gold and offers it to the world. All That Gold was originally one of many groundbreaking electronic pop songs off of the visionary artist’s self titled EP from last year. Angelako’s seraphic cover feels like it’s made up of delicate shards of glass, each one gently reflecting a wavelength of light, culminating in an ethereal prism thoroughly enchanting and softly entrancing. It’s a beautiful approach on Elohim’s dreamy wafting, chiffon drifting gem. Elohim’s outstanding self-titled EP is available from iTunes, here.
