There's an argument for tinkering with the same sound until you reach perfection, see Animal Collective. And there's the flipside, see Axl Rose. NYC's Pains Of Being Pure At Heart adhere to neither school, and instead, wisely, plump for the if-it-ain't-broke approach.

The C86, `true-indie' influence is still strong, the early Britpop jangle still present, and thankfully, unlike the LP, nothing sounds like James.

So, it is with open arms, the listener greats afresh the irresistible Stone Roses-like, take-on-the-world optimism of the title track. An enviable wash of fuzz is supplied for the classic-sounding `103', and it recalls every great dance floor you've graced. `Falling Over' and `Twins' are welcomed to the nostalgic party unobtrusively. Twelve minutes of smiling indie-pop with a remix of `Higher Than The Stars' to boot - you lucky things.

This band are so beautiful, i see them as a hybrid of Belle and Sebastian, The Cure and The Smiths in a lovely warm indie melting pot. So happy music like this is still being made and released.

Great EP, very nice lo-fi feel to it just as with the LP and it just plays as a great soundtrack to life!

Definitely will be buying the 12" as it sounds super good on vinyl
