It was beginning to get a little weird, what with Alison Mosshart eerily resembling a singing, blustery Meg White alternate during her time with Jack White in The Dead Weather, but thank goodness she’s back promoting a new album with her old two-piece, The Kills. He seems to have that effect on a lot of female artists he works with, doesn’t he? Anyway, we don’t really have to tell you how much we adore adorable noise- poppers The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, but just for good measure: Their new album Belong is just as good, if not better, than the last, so you should probably go see them. Probably.
