Pure X’s Pleasure continues to provide just that. The Austin trio’s sleepy, hazy followup to the reissued You’re In It Now EP arrived out of nowhere and — one pretty, loose, patient, blown-out, warmly melancholic song at a time — has become one of my favorite albums of 2011. You heard “Twisted Mirror.” Get lost in “Dry Ice.”
Pleasure is out 7/5 via Acéphale.
