The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Selftitled (2009)

it's been a long time since the last post but i'm sure it hasn't affected any of our stats


so here's something that's so 2009:

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart is the self-titled debut album by the New York indie band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, released on February 3, 2009. The album was recorded at Honeyland Studios in Brooklyn, New York, and was mixed by Archie Moore. The album was released to generally warm critical reception, with Allmusic drawing comparisons to My Bloody Valentine, Ride, The Field Mice, and bands on Sarah Records.Rolling Stone compared the band to the The Jesus and Mary Chain, while The Tune compared the album to "a rock version of Joy Division, and an American version of The Smiths." In December 2009 Radio Scilly's new music show The Sound Of Confusion declared The Pains Of Being Heart to be the best album of the year, as well as the 4th best album of the decade.
