YE-LID News: Our (2nd) Favourite Band Of 2009 Has A New EP

If there's one album that's come close (oh so close!) to somehow being better than Merriweather Post Pavillion, it's the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart's self-titled debut. That record has soundtracked so many great moments for me this year that I feel like it's been around far longer than a few months.

Well, they're back again with a [brilliant] EP. Some would argue that this screams "riding the wave of recent popularity", which could be valid if the songs on Higher Than The Stars weren't SO GOOD. There's no letdown whatsoever, and there's no sense that these are b-sides that got thrown together to make a few bucks. I love this band way too much.

Pre-order the EP here, and enjoy the title track below.
