Inconceivably already a decade old, sickly twee-masters The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are releasing album number four The Echo Of Pleasure. While the teeny elements of Pains' sound will doubtless remain there is something of a coming of age feel to lead singles 'Anymore' and 'My Only', which sounds about right given that frontman Kip Berman is now married and with child. If we're honest, that evolution is very welcome - there's not much fun in sickly adolescent feelings once you're well into your 30's. There is, in fact, a fabulous influence of Echo & The Bunnymen that runs through Pains' new work (the 'Echo' in the title being just a coincidence I'm sure) but as a maturing indie band, there is not many a higher aspiration than that.

A great little record at a discount price. Ordered this online and it arrived quickly and in mint condition. It's really pleasant inoffensive indie pop similar to the poppier Jesus and Mary Chain songs, bit of Echo and the Bunnymen, Johnny Marr guitar bands, think of acts like Stars / New Pornographers etc. It's not groundbreaking or revolutionary but it's a great record to lift your mood and play on a Summer's day, and for the £10 I paid you can't go wrong.
