the pains of being pure at heart – the pains of being pure at heart (2009)

02.12.2009

yeah, yeah, i know this is about as ‘flavor of the week’ as it gets, and it’s something i usually try to avoid wasting posts on when every single blog ever is putting up an artist, but what the hey. i was expecting straight up hipster garabe when i downloaded this, but i was pleasantly met with sweet, upbeat melodies drenched with just the right amount of fuzz and haze. i don’t really understand why these guys are being lumped in with the rest of the lo-fi/noise-pop miscreants, as POBPAH’s pop is tight-knit, melodic (not in the vague, abstract, OBVIOUSLY INFLUENCED BY THE BEACH BOYS DUH way), and well-produced. the jesus and mary chain influence is quite clear, but more upbeat. pour yourself a glass of cheap wine, throw on your AmAppy hoodie, and dance the night away.
