Jesse (of Pure X) – De-pression

CLOWN

Jesse Jenkins of the beloved (dearly departed?) TX band Pure X shares another stellar single from his solo debut Hard Sky, due next month on Uniform Group.

Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Judah – O Yeah

o yeah

Judah is my best friend in the whole wide world. It is pretty inspiring to always be able to hear what he is working on. He likes to hop around in terms of genre/style with his recordings. Sometimes he is working on breakneck punk rockers and other times he puts out beautiful gems like this. The guy is really on to something. -- Drew from Hoops
