The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Everything With You

Ah, just when winter starts to set in with a cold snap, here comes a single that seems to be perpetually stuck in summer. Everything With You is the unholy child of Belle & Sebastian's one night stand with My Bloody Valentine. It's noise pop provided on E and bounces around like Brit Pop's bloated corpse didn't float down the Thames, circa 1997. Which is pretty fucking surprising seeming that The Pains herald from the USA. Still it's best not to look a gift horse in the mouth, especially one that's capable of warming even the coldest of winter days. Especially when the B-side is a self-titled stomping sing-along We will never die kicks in. Hail to eternal youth!
