Pains That Won't Go Away

Buzz bands come and go at such a speed that by the time autumn rolls around it's easy to forget that charmingly twee indie outfit you were obsessing over before baseball season began. The Pains Of Being Pure Of Heart, who released a fetchingly sad and catchy self-titled debut album back in February, have something here to remind you. Namely, a four song Higher Than The Stars EP, in which the quartet fronted by Kip Berman keeps their low-key winning streak going. A clip of the "Higher" title cut performed last month in Seattle is below, and POBPOH will be at the First Unitarian Church tonight.
