The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

And now, instead of a full review, I present to you a blurb, because I just don’t have the time.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, a quartet from New York, got a heaping amount of buzz for their self-titled debut album. Like most bands who come out of nowhere to great acclaim, it’s well-deserved. A collection of dreamy, excellently crafted punk-pop gems, the album is an outstanding achievement, producing songs that, after less than a year, already sound like classics. Who cares how many lyrics this band writes about sex? Who cares if they use words like “microfiche” and a liberal amount of puns? These songs are just too perfect to resist.

Next time, I put forth a diligent effort to finally finish Middlesex. If I don’t make it, however, I will listen to and review Contra instead.
