Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Pains of Being Pure at Heart: Kip Berman (vocals, guitar); Peggy Wang-East (vocals, keyboards); Alex Naidus (bass guitar).
  • Audio Mixer: Archie Moore.
  • Audio Remasterer: Jon Chaikin.
  • Recording information: Honeyland Studios, Brooklyn, NY (2008).
  • Bridging the sound of mid-1980s Paisley Underground dream-pop and early '90s alternative rock/ shoegaze from both sides of the pond, this bi-gender Brooklyn quartet is pure melodic bliss for lovers of music both jagged and sweet. On "Stay Alive," the vibe is all Pale Saints, gentle and ethereal, while cleverly titled songs like "Young Adult Friction" crackle with David Gedge-worthy post-punk riffs. PAINS OF BEING PURE is everything that its title implies, but in its very beauty and simplicity, this LP offers little room for debate about any corresponding lack of depth.

Clash (magazine) (p.98) - "'Come Saturday' gallops along with breezy boy/girl harmonies, blanketed by glimmering guitar shapes and carefree lyrics, while epic closer 'Gentle Sons' is a lush, dreamy track..."
