MUSIC THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART - BELONG - 28 MARCH 2011
The speaker-swallowing guitars that rise up at the start of "Belong" roughly translate to "fuck twee." The new Pains of Being Pure at Heart aren't the same cassette-hissers angling for that anchor spot on your indie valentine C60 mix. Not quite. Bulked up by the sonic tinkering of 1990s alt-rock studio gods Flood and Alan Moulder, these sometime pun-lovers are giving life to their own Siamese Dream, gunning for the Pumpkins at their most pop. And, at this point, they're beating Billy Corgan at the game he invented.
