First Impressions: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I'm on The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's myspace page as I write. In my nice pair of Sennheiser headphones the sound is really cavernous. Essentially we've got new-wave tempo and feel in a twee pop giddyness level underneath a typical but not heavy shoegaze sheen. It must be nice to be a shoegazer band today -- production levels have risen to the point that massive sheets of effects don't blur into a tinny ring of distortion. If anything, this is making me really excited to hear a remastered "Loveless." On its own though, this band is giving out a completely missable set of pop songs. Take it or leave it.
