Today's Quick Mention: I see that
Carlos D has
to up and leave Interpol now that they've wrapped
work on their fourth LP. Is that good or bad?
I honestly don't have a clue, but as is usually the
case when a key member bails after a good run, it'll
be interesting to see where they go from here.
To be honest, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are
the most trendy hipster band out there, and I can't
stop loving them. I mean, just look at that
name! It's amazingly ridiculous. And
their fuzzy retro pop sound? Nothing screams
skinny capris and beards more than it does. Oh
well. They have a new 7" titled Say No To
Love that's due June 8 on Slumberland.
It's good. Enjoy.
Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Say No To Love:
I have no interest in ever hearing a different sound from
these guys, so I'm definitely OK with this being another
entry in their continuously growing catalog of sugary sweet
gems. Now, if only I could figure out a way to get
them to re-route their summer tour (which also features fun
and trendy acts Surfer Blood and Hooray For Earth) through
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Young Adult Friction
