The Big Pink: Ready To Be Loved

I absolutely love The Big Pink, and while it's not going to be able to knock Ben Klock's One out of the #1 slot for my favorite album of 2009, it's definitely aiming for the top five. They've finally released A Brief History Of Love and Pitchfork not only gave it an 8.2 rating, but it's a well-crafted review. I love the production and brooding ambiance on the record, and am thrilled that they are leather-jacket wearing kids from London streets with tons of cryptic and dark photographs of dead celebrities on their MySpace. It's delicious, and they're coming to New York TWICE this fall.

12/3 @ Bowery Ballroom
12/4 @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg

For a more lo-fi experience, check out A Grave With No Name, which I came across via the Big Pink's MySpace page. Much more Panda Bear than The Horrors.
