The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart (2022 Reissue)
As one of the key bands in Brooklyn's late 00s guitar music revival (alongside Crystal Stilts, Grizzly Bear, Vivian Girls, Frankie Rose and others) The Pains paid tribute to everything from C86 to early Slumberland, Sarah and Creation label pop, but with a distinct American flavor drawn from groups like Smashing Pumpkins and The Pixies. Their debut album exploded immediately, going places that indiepop records and bands rarely do (like TV appearances on Carson Daly's and David Letterman's shows) and leading to several years of constant touring and the further release of two more well-received albums. Pressed on White, Pink and
Yellow Color Vinyl.
Released: April 2022
Label: Slumberland Records
