The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

103 (mp3, Mediafire)

Honestly, I am super-stoked about the upcoming Pains of Being Pure at Heart releases. I got my copy of the Come Saturday 7" in the mail yesterday (this blog sharing a name with the b-side, "Side Ponytail," is a happy (and welcome) accident -- I registered this blog 4 or 5 months ago and have been in the process of figuring out what to do with it ever since) and listening to their most recent 7" has only heightened my anticipation of their upcoming EP.

I saw a lot of concerts this summer (and am slated to see quite a few this fall) and the Pains are one of the only bands I committed to seeing more than once. (The only other groups that I'll be seeing more than once this year are Girls and Dinosaur Jr.) They put on a fantastic show and they totally blew me away with their enthusiasm on two totally different sides of the country. I wish that I could say I'll be catching them again, but I don't think it'll be happening any time soon.

The first time I heard "103" was when I saw the Pains perform in Cleveland back in April. I loved it the first time I heard it and am thrilled that it will be included on their upcoming Higher Than the Stars EP.
