Brooklyn’s dream-pop sensation The Pains of Being Pure At Heart are just coming off of their tour time and have a new single coming out soon!
This is pretty exciting news, guys. I’ve been waiting for something to stir from this band since the release of their Higher Than The Stars EP last year.
It would seem that my waiting paid off. :) The single is called “Say No To Love” and will be backed with a song called “Lost Saint”. After it’s release on June 8th, the band will embark on a short tour of the lower East coast of the country with Surfer Blood and Hooray for Earth. Once the tour’s complete, the band will begin working on their sophomore LP. Naturally, the single’s coming out on Slumberland Records.

I can only imagine what this single will sound like; probably the same format the band’s always had. But hey, it’s not like that’s going to stop you from listening to it. Plus, dig that artwork. :)
Vampire Weekend have released the video for the second single from their upcoming album, Contra.
The song is called “Cousins”. The video is amazing. From a filmmaker’s perspective, which I am lucky enough to have, it is a creative production that I wish that I had been a part of.
It’s on the front page of their website. Click the image above to go there.
