The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Belong

My newest acquisition, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s brand spanking new Belong, is like standing underneath a waterfall of liquid love. With the virtue of My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, and Galaxie 500, TPOBPAH dip you in a fondue of molten guitars and prozaic pop fast-water balladry. This album is a current favorite, and though they only have the title track available on bandcamp, heading down to your mom & pop record dealer and copping either the 12″ or the magnetic spinny is highly recommended.
