The deluxe edition of the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s third full-length, Days Of Abandon, came out today, complete with five bonus tracks including “Poison Touch” and this one, a warm and fluttery song called “Summer Of Dreams.” It’s another strong b-side that easily could have fit in on the album, but it makes sense that Kip Berman kept it off the LP after espousing the benefits of keeping an album concise in an interview with us earlier this year: “All of our records have 10 songs. Who wants to hear a band’s 11th best song? Not me. Plus, then you can have really good b-sides to reward people that buy 7″ singles, which for whatever reason are WAY expensive now.” Listen below.
