Pure X Announce 'Angel' - Listen to "Starlight"

2014-02-13

 
Austin band Pure X is pleased to announce their third LP, Angel, out April 1st on Fat Possum.  Over the course of each full-length the band has tirelessly reinvented themselves, opting to stay true to their own sensibilities and create the music that they wanted to make. With the third album, and their first as a quartet, their previous creations have given way to a new found serenity, a calm which finds the band in its most potent, refined, and elemental form yet.  Pure X have crafted a beautifully genuine pop record whose influences span across genres and generations without reserve while simultaneously coming into their own in the process.

Temples "Sun Structures" In Stores Today

2014-02-11

 
Happy release day to Temples.  They have released their debut album "Sun Structures"!

"Temples specialize in '60s-washed psychedelia, blending anemic vocals and shaggy melodies into a wonderfully murky swirl." - SPIN
 
"'Colours To Life' adeptly balances both their idols' folk-pop roots and psych-rock branches . . . It's an unearthing of a time capsule for sure, but 'Colours To Life' still can feel like a breath of fresh air." - Pitchfork
 
“Temples manage to add modern sensibility to their retro influences without feeling derivative.” - The Week

Water Liars Album Stream

2014-01-28

 
We’re excited to bring you the latest album from Water Liars. The Mississippi rock band’s self-titled followup to last year’s Wyoming hits stores on February 4 through Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess Records, but you can stream it in its entirety at American Songwriter.

Water Liars is a record about trying to live and love and earn a living in times and places that don’t make it easy on anybody,” says frontman Justin Kinkel-Schuster. “It’s about trying to handle the bad times that nobody escapes and take care of the good times as long as they last. It’s us trying to tell about the outskirts of America that we’ve seen, lived through and live in, and get it right, for once if not for all.”
