TPOBPAH at Summerstage in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)

NYC indie pop band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart have been relatively quiet lately, but it's looking like that's about to change. Frontman Kip Berman has been instagramming guitar pedals lately, which hopefully means they're back in the studio, and Pains have also announced what will be their first hometown show in a while, happening on March 28 at Rough Trade NYC. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/17) at noon.

The band's only other currently announced date is New Orleans festival BUKU Music + Art Project, which happens from March 21-22 and also includes The Flaming Lips, Chromeo, Explosions in the Sky, Tyler the Creator, Pusha T, Schoolboy Q, Baauer b2b RL Grime, Danny Brown, Phantogram, Skream, Wavves, Big Freedia, Thundercat, Cashmere Cat, Blood Diamonds and more. Tickets for that festival are on sale now.

There's also been some changes to Pains' lineup. Keyboardist Peggy Wang recently announced that she left the band in order to focus on her job as a writer at Buzzfeed.

TPOBPAH recently released a belated video for "Belong" off their 2011 LP of the same name, which you can watch below...

I thought she left BuzzFeed for that band. Guess we know how that worked out.

Didn't the bassist leave as well (because he left New York for LA)?

The perfect music for eunuch scarves (redundant, I know).

Music for boys who pee sitting down

another release i had been looking forward to, but find myself a little let down. similar to the new Horrors record there are some solid tracks on 'Days of Abandon' but several that just don't do much for me. "Simple and Sure" is one of the good ones...give it a go.
