NEW TRACKS: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, “Eurydice”

If you’ve ever been driving on a summer night with the windows down and left looking for the perfect song, look no further. New York’s The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s new single has got you covered. The group’s newest track “Eurydice” comes from the forthcoming album Days of Abandon. It’s as dreamy and smooth as their previous releases but contains a soaring chorus that feels fresh and new. Lead singer Kip Berman and keyboardist Peggy Wang blend their voices seamlessly, and when backed by a floaty keyboard and guitar track, the song feels light and spirited. Whether you’re already a fan of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s music or have never heard of ‘em, wait no longer and make this your new warm weather track.

NEW TRACKS: The Both - “Milwaukee

On the heels of touring together last year, hometown hero Ted Leo and rock royalty Aimee Mann joined creative forces to write, play, and record music as The Both. What started for the duo as just an EP quickly turned into a full-blown, eleven-track LP. “Milwaukee,” the lead single from the pair’s forthcoming, eponymous debut album, commemorates the moment Leo and Mann realized they should combine their kindred musical spirits. 

We walked over the bridge in Milwaukee / Past the statue of Fonz in the dirt,” Mann sings amidst vibrant, punchy guitar riffs of that fateful day. In true collaborative style, Mann and Leo share vocal duties, switching off between verses, but always coming together to harmonize the chorus. Throughout the track, interspersed, jarring distortion pays homage to the two’s rock roots while undeniably catchy handclaps convey an overall upbeat, pop punk feel. As the song nears its end, the guitar strumming loosens and drumming slows, mimicking the final seconds of that “nucleus burnin’ inside of a cell.” 

The Both drops April 15 on Mann’s own label, SuperEgo Records. Then, just a couple weeks later, the duo play here at the Club! You won’t want to miss it.

Really good stuff from Ted Leo and Aimee Mann. I’m eager to hear more and see the show.
