The Pains of Being Pure At Heart - Days Abandon / by Rollie Agado

Earlier this year, I read that the Pains of Being Pure at Heart - were releasing an album... I learned it was going to be released some time in May and I totally forgot about it.

While flying over to Seattle the other day, I made it a point to download the record so that I could give it a proper listen and I was quite surprised to hear an album so heavily influenced by danceable beats and Johnny Marr (the Smiths).

I've been listening to this band for several years now because of earlier releases on Slumberland records...  this album has a very polished sound.  

I just read that the band also features a new vocalist from another band called - A Sunny Day in Glasgow.   Her voice is quite angelic.  

This one has slipped into my growing list of must buy new albums.  If you get a chance to listen to this album from beginning to end, I highly recommend that you do.
