Chicago space rock act The Life And Times is blasting A.V. Club readers off into the weekend with a new track. “Passion Pit” isn’t about the band of the same name, we don’t think, but it does contain elements of the Boston band’s multi-layered sound. The Life And Times’ new record, Lost Bees, is out Aug. 5 via SlimStyle Records.

The Life And Times are touring this summer, and dates are below.
