Pains of Being Pure at Heart Days of Abandon

You probably already know that The Pains of Being Pure at Heart will follow up 2011's Belong with Days of Abandon, out next week via Yebo - now, in case you couldn't wait another week, they're streaming it via a forty-minute YouTube video that includes lyrics for every song. We've heard early singles "Simple and Sure" and "Eurydice," but they've got more in store as well - "Art Smock" has a charmingly caustic lyrics and twee vibe that recalls Belle and Sebastian, "Kelly" figures new singer Jen Goma's vocals over a bubbly musical backdrop that recalls, uh, Belle and Sebastian, and then there's "Masokissed," which sees Kip Berman doing his best Morrissey impression. Check it out - you can grab a physical copy in a record store starting May 13th.
