Certified Banger # 18

Our latest BANGER comes from Brooklyn's The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, whose eponymous debut album of melancholic jangle-pop has landed on the scene. Destined to be compared to the past and the lo-fi movement that has been resurrected in the indie world as of late, the band recalls the early work of My Bloody Valentine and Field Mice.

There are a couple of tracks worthy of BANGER status on the album, but I went with "This Love is Fucking Right," partly because it has the stronger name and also because it kicks ass. I love subtle, yet strong bass lines and this song has one.

I found a pretty sweet black and white video of the band performing the track at the Luna Lounge in Brooklyn, you can check it out down below and as always you can find the more polished version of the track on the sidebar. Enjoy...
