Pains get "Higher Than The Stars."

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart clicked in my head at the beginning of last week, and I've listened to their self-titled debut full length nearly every day since.

The band would probably be at home among the Cure-ish twee-pop groups that indie fans have embraced online in the last decade. Thankfully, POBPAH aren't that lame because I am convinced that, deep down, there's some angst buried among the emotion. Which is why there's no slow-motion boredom - all the songs are upbeat movers.

There's an MP3 linked below, which I listened to six times this morning, and not just because I decided to post it. It's just that bouncy and up-sounding, and totally (not) appropriate for the Day of Atonement.

1. Higher Than the Stars (mp3)
2. 103
3. Falling Over
4. Twins
5. Higher Than the Stars (Saint Etienne Visits Lord Spank Mix) - CDEP version only
