The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (Explicit)

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
Released: Feb 2009
Label: Slumberland Records
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart is a shameless and utterly joyous homage to classic twee and fuzzy indie pop: the Vaselines, early Primal Scream (before turning into the Stones), the Jesus and Mary Chain and Black Tambourine. This reverb-soaked mimicry is so spot-on that you'll swear the album is a lost gem from the late '80s. The sturdy rhythm section is the only aspect that doesn't fit. Drummer Kurt Feldman possesses a strength and confidence not typically associated with twee. That's cool with us.
