Did you ask them how they managed to get Selma Blair on the cover of their album?

Really enjoyable song.

To me, it sounds like it couldn't be anymore influenced by mid-80s post-punk alternative rock if it tried. I hear UF-era U2(I don't see how anyone couldn't), maybe Joy Division, Simple Minds, etc.

I know there a few fans of the band on this board (including me! ), so I thought I'd post this news about them putting out a new EP in September. Lovely.

Pitchfork: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart to Release New EP and Single

I'm guessing they're a band, IWB.

March 29th

Produced by Flood

Here the title track here (which seriously sounds a little Smashing Pumpkins-ish, guitar wise):

Pitchfork: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Talk New LP

Looks like Heart In Your Heartbreak will be on the album too, which is a good thing since that song is fantastic.

Quote:
Pitchfork: Were you anxious about recording with Flood?

KB: Yeah. We had a conference call with him beforehand, and I thought, "He might not like the sound of our voices-- he could change his mind!" And there were a lot of fears-- like, is this guy going to show up and tell us to do these sweeping Edge guitar solos? But, really, it helped us be more us.

Alex Naidus: I didn't know if I was supposed to call him "Flood." [laughs] The answer is yes-- that's all he goes by. Then I was nervous because we had never really recorded properly before-- I didn't know if he was going to make fun of how I play bass. There were all these levels of pseudo-anxiety but, by the end of the first day, we were cracking jokes. I would hang out with him any day. We even showed him that Nine Inch Nails "shreds" thing where they put awful music over the "March of the Pigs" video and he loved it. He e-mailed to Trent.

KB: We got comfortable enough that, at one point, we took some paper and tape and made it look like his U2 Grammy was ours.

Did you listen to it?

I think I'll probably wait, really looking forward to it though. That reminds me that I should preorder it!
