Today's Quick Mention:  I see that Carlos D has decided 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.

:The 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 Austin.
