1. Come Saturday  [mp3]
2. Side Ponytail

2009 was been a whirlwind year for The Pains of Being Pure At Heart. Since releasing their self-titled debut album in February, they've become one of the most talked-about new bands in years. They've toured the world to rapturous welcome, been featured in magazines like Spin, Rolling Stone and the NME, received the Best New Music accolade from Pitchfork and even made their debut television appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly.

Come Saturday is taken from their smash album and shows exactly why so many people are excited about the Pains. A breathless rush of guitar noise married to a classic pop tune, "Come Saturday" shows the band's early MBV and Rocketship influences but isn't the least bit retro. It's pure Pains - timeless noisy pop played with energy and enthusiasm and featuring as finely-honed a tune as you'll hear all year. B-side "Side Ponytail" is old skool Pains, and possibly one of their most indie-pop moments. Uptempo, instantly catchy and racing in just over two minutes, it's yet another example of the seeming effortlessness with which The Pains deliver perfect pop tunes. We guarantee you'll be playing this one on repeat.
