The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - "Say No to Love" (stream)

Not sure when summer officially begins, but the Pains of Being Pure at Heart have already kicked off what they're declaring as "The Summer of Say No to Love" by announcing a new 7" and a short June jaunt of the east coast and south with one of this year's most hyped newcomers, Surfer Blood. The new single "Say No to Love", steaming over at Pitchfork, is just what you'd expect from the Brooklyn band, a perfectly sunny, strummy, breathy number that gets you even more in the mood for a vacation. Slumberland releases the single proper on June 8, while the tour begins in Milford, CT on June 3.
