Today’s New Favorite Band Of All Time Could Have Most Pretentious Band Name Ever

PhotobucketIt seems like I find a new favorite band of all time every week or so. This week, that band is called The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart. I know what you are thinking…emo kids right? Oh hell no. It takes severe physical restraint for me not to punch an emo kid when I see one so I sure as hell aren’t going to listen to any of their crap bands.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart is more like a throwback to 1980s pop/punk. It’s very Jesus and Mary Chain-ish, with fuzzy guitars and muffled vocals that sound like they were recorded in a cave. The music is really upbeat and happy but, dude, these lyrics are depressing. The entire album is filled with jingly jangly guitar hooks and catchy choruses. In other words, it’s totally awesome. Here’s the tune “Stay Alive”.
