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.

JULIA LUCILLE

We were lucky enough to see Austin's Julia Lucille perform songs from her stunning new LP recently in her hometown, in an intimate, packed-out room inside at the Mohawk. Her powerfully understated and emotionally moving performance only reinforced for us that Chthonic, a collection of smoldering, vulnerable dream-folk reveries, is one of the most beautiful and haunting records you're going to hear all year...
