Pure X: "Things In My Head"

Maybe they're done moving to Brooklyn. Pure X is one of the first bands from Austin I've heard in awhile that seems like a finished product rather than mere kinetic promise (for a city that calls itself the Live Music Capital of the World we've been borrowing our A-list talent from the road in recent years). Album #2 for these boys, Crawling Up the Stairs, seems almost polished compared to their 2011 debut, Pleasure, but that seems to have more to do with an increased comfort in letting the songs speak for themselves than any kind of crass grab for the brass ring.
