The Pains of Being Pure at Heart had one of the most unexpectedly delightful albums in 2009, taking the shoegazer, fuzzy lo-fi aesthetic and marrying it to tight pop arrangements and boy-girl harmonies.
Belong is the sophomore album from the Brooklyn indie-poppers, which drops March 29 via Slumberland. Right now, the entire album is streaming online. Click below to hear it, via the band’s website. Sounds like they have another pleasurable album on their hands. Yes, it’s still very shoegazey, but it sounds much beefier than their first record.
