The PAINS of BEING PURE at HEART – ” The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart ” (2022 Reissue)

Posted: April 3, 2022 in MUSIC

Since its release in 2009 The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s self-titled debut has attained the status of a modern indie-pop classic – and even more crucially a record that continues to have an impact well beyond the indiepop scene.

As one of the key bands in Brooklyn’s late 00s guitar music revival (alongside bands like Crystal Stilts, Grizzly Bear, Vivian Girls, Frankie Rose and others) The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart paid tribute to everything from c86 to early Slumberland, Sarah and Creation Record’s label type pop, but with a distinct American favour drawn from groups like Smashing Pumpkins and the Pixies.

Their debut album exploded immediately, going places that indie-pop 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 latter albums.
