iTunes Review

You’d never guess the guys in Austin’s Pure X are skaters; the trio turns out quiet, hazy mood rock that is psychedelic and pastoral, and picturing them shredding in a concrete ditch just doesn’t come easily. The music is so loose and flowing that Pleasure was recorded live, without overdubs, in the studio. There’s a decidedly stoner influence to this music, especially in the guitar work, which sets them apart from other lo-fi, reverb-drenched outfits of the moment. Guitarist/vocalist Nate Grace might have been exposed to Galaxy 500 or Spaceman 3 in the womb; his drones, shrouded in distortion and neon, circle and hover, tethered to Austin Youngblood’s simple, solid drumming and Jesse Jenkins’ languid bass. A few songs, like “Easy” and “Dry Ice,” are fueled with more potent energy, with melodies that evoke the Jesus and Mary Chain. Grace’s fondness for effects and feedback suit the music just fine, those washes of texture and color complementing his voice when it reaches for a vulnerable falsetto or a sweet, wraith-like wail. “Heavy Air” is a spellbinding opener, with Grace’s guitar spooling out single, slow burning notes forever, as if he’s reluctant to let them go.

Customer Reviews


I love this album. To me, it sounds like The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Velvet Underground, and My Bloody Valentine got together and took a bunch of tranquilizers. The lush, fuzzy guitar work is blissful. A pleasure indeed. The 4 song "You're in it Now" EP is fantastic as well. The only problem with listening to Pure X is that it kind of makes me want to try heroin.

E for Effort

It's seems that all the bands coming out of Brooklyn are all starting to sound the same with the Washed Outs, Beach Fossils, and so on.This is a nice change of pace and even thought they have a heavy shoegazer influence, Pure X seem to differentiate themselves from the rest of the bands in the genre-rehash. Great for smoking a joint and watching the rain from your apartment window.

Pure X? More like Pure AWESOME!

i loved loved loved loved loved this album. it is soooooo chill. very good to listen to while doing anything. if you pay attention you will here different textures, dischord, washes of niose and feedback.... i wish i could crawl inside this and live forever. extremely relaxing.


Formed: Austin, TX

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Austin, Texas trio Pure X play languid, dreamy noise pop that floats on a raft of thick, distorted guitar sounds, carried along by a current of simple but determined rhythms. The members of Pure X first met when they were attending college in San Marcos, Texas, not far from Austin. Bassist Jesse Jenkins and drummer Austin Youngblood were members of the band Silver Pines, while guitarist and vocalist Nate Grace played in a short-lived band with Jenkins and released a handful of solo projects on cassette....
