At this point I think I’ve said more words about The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s coming soon album than I have about anything else on the planet (you can read them all in my collection of posts entitled “Alec: An exploration of the forthcoming album, Belong”, available in no good book stores) so it’s with fingers worn down to bloody stumps that I bring you news of yet another new track from the Brooklyn noise poppers, it’s called Belong, it’s the title track from the album and it should absolutely not be confused with this, this, this or even this. Swapping out their trademarked jingle jangle pop noise for a bigger sound, Kip’s anglophile vocals resting somewhere between huge dirty bass and guitars as immidiet as they make them, with production coming from Flood and Alan Moulder, two men who’ve previously brought us genre defining work from The Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine, it’s about as exciting as they’ve ever sounded.

I think you should play it louder.
