Pure X: Pleasure
Buy! - (Acephale)
Formerly known as Pure Ecstasy, this Austin band offers up a fine debut album of atmospheric psych-pop with a hazy, reverbed sound reminiscent of Galaxie 500 and early My Morning Jacket, combining fuzzy, blown-out guitar textures, slow tempos, crooning, occasionally falsetto vocals and some gorgeous slow-rolling melodies. 7/1/2011 - Don Yates
