The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Contender
Yes, it's another great new band from Brooklyn! The borough where rocks bands grow on trees, or between cracks in the sidewalk. These guys-and-gal might actually have the debut of the year here with their very appealing self-titled record. Almost every song sounds like a hit to me--catchy pop with affecting melodies and vocals. Pitchfork interviews the band here and Aural States has another good interview here.
MP3 The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Contender (from 2009's The Pains of Being Pure at Heart)
UPDATE: nice video of the band doing Young Adult Friction (great song title)
