It seems like there are a whole bunch of local Austin bands that i loved over the last decade who just kind of up and disappeared. (I'll always remember you Harlem.) One of those bands, the purveyors of dreamy, shoegazey Americana known as Pure X, released a string of excellent albums, and then vanished after 2014's "Angel." Hopefully we'll get more music from them in the future, but in the meantime, we've got "Hard Sky," a solo album of wonderfully bleak Americana coming from band member Jesse Jenkins in June on Uniform Group. Listen to the title track below.
