Album News: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Self-titled

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart album cover

Sometimes, it’s the artists with the most terrible names that make the best music. Take the Red Hot Chili Peppers for example, how did a band with that name become succesful? The same should happen with the atrociously titled The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and their similarly awful eponymous debut album.

It will be released on Fortuna Records in the UK in February 2009, and I cannot wait. The acronym is even terrible, POBPAH. But luckily the album looks set to be one of the best of 2009, and they’re an act definitely should look out for. Expect them to feature on my alternative to BBC’s Sound of 2009!

As for now, why don’t you have a listen to one of their tunes from that debut record…
