Pure X

When: Fri., May 17, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Once known as Pure Ecstasy, the Texas trio now called Pure X continue to bait with their rave-promising name but switch with their muted and distant tunes. Like a sun-warped country record played through broken speakers, Pure X uses its songs as only the starting point of emotional expression. They say as much with how these tunes are played—vocals that drown in their own effects, guitars that build only to break, rhythms that would consider a canter a curse—as with the tunes themselves. It's fragile, immersive stuff, better lived in than listened to. —Grayson Currin
