Pure X – “Dry Ice” (Stereogum Premiere)
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.
