TWEE POP, 2012-RELEASES

The Magnetic Fields might have been the last band I ever unconditionally loved without ever stopping to try to understand why—just the kind of love story I hoped to one day live through.” On the topic of East River Pipe’s “My Life is Wrong,” lead vocalist / guitarist Kip Berman says: “Sure, it had all the prerequisites of this particular strain of indie pop—jangly guitars, the tinny kick and snare of a drum machine, and an intimate vocal delivery intended for living rooms and campus rec centers, not big rock clubs or arenas. But where many of F.M. Cornog’s peers sang gently about gentle things—unrequited love or social discomfort—his understated voice evoked a sense of grand ambition thwarted (‘God knows I tried to live, this is all there is’). I heard a man striving for something far greater than he knew he could ever achieve, emerging from defeat with this undeniable pop gem as recompense for his struggle.” The Pains have always been quick to share their enthusiasm for the bands that inspire them to make music, and with this great, rocking single they very concretely pay tribute to two of the finest songwriters in contemporary indie music.
