Searching For The Now 4- The Pains of Being Pure at Heart/Summer Cats

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I got a copy of this 7" today and I knew that I had to run home and give it a listen immediately. "Come Saturday" is another solid track from the NYC foursome, this being the first time I'm hearing them on recording with a live drummer.  You can preview "Come Saturday" on the Pains Myspace page, linked up above.  Of the 2 tracks, this is definitely the highlight and if this is any indication of what's to come, their full length is going to be awesome!

Summer Cats

The other side of this 7" offers a track from Summer Cats called "Let's Go!". This track can also be previewed on the band's Myspace page. This is an alright track, very Stereolab-ish, but a little rawer sounding...but in all honesty, I would have rather there had been 2 Pains tracks on here.

But, if it's indie pop that you are looking for, then this 7" from Slumberland is just what you need. It comes on grey vinyl and is super limited, for all you collectors.
