Pure X had begun recording Crawling Up the Stairs, their sophomore full-length, before their beloved 2011 debut, Pleasure, had even made it to shelves. But just because the Austin outfit gave themselves a lot of time doesn’t mean the LP came without its share of turmoil. As principal songwriters Nate Grace and Jesse Jenkins tell it, Crawling Up the Stairs traces the arc of a personal descent into hell and the slow climb back out of it — a storyline no doubt inspired by a couple of breakups and a skateboarding tumble that gave Grace a gruesome knee injury that left him on crutches for a large portion of last year. Grace and Jenkins, who recorded Crawling Up the Stairs with longtime drummer Austin Youngblood, talked to SPIN from a gas station in northern Texas about the loose, largely improvisational roots of the new album. Stream the record in full and check out Grace and Jenkins’s track-by-track breakdown:
