YOUR HEART BREAKS: New Ocean Waves: CD

Those darlings at Plan-It-X Records have done it again. Your Heart Breaks’ New Ocean Waves is a mellow, poppy album with great lyrics sung in a charmingly bored way. I’m sad that I didn’t get to it until the autumn, because with all it’s lyrical talk of making out and getting in with the “wrong crowd” this record makes me long for summer. There’s even a song called “Mixed Tapes” which broke my heart immediately with its first lines: “Making mixed tapes for you late at night/ tonight you’re so very far away/ sticking strictly to 45s tonight/ it’s easier to pick and choose which songs to play.” Hell yeah.
