With Pains of Being Pure at Heart's new album Belong garnering buzz, Phoenix record store Revolver Records has locked the band down for an April 14 in-store performance.
The show is the band's only Phoenix date --they are playing Tucson's Club Congress with Warpaint the night before --making it Valley hipsters only chance to catch the band on this tour.
Belong follows the band's self titled debut, a blurry, lo-fi collection of classic indie pop and C86 sounds. The new record cleans things up considerably, with producers Alan Moulder and Flood (U2, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins) adding a spit shined sheen to the proceedings, but the first single, "Heart in your Heartbreak" sounds okay --though not as instantly lovable as songs like "Young Adult Friction" from their debut.
