Pure 13's debut is a solid set of hard-rocking tunes that marry metallic post-punk riffs, modern-sounding loops and electronic enhancement, and genuine pop smarts. A variety of influences is at work here, from Nine Inch Nails to the Psychedelic Furs to Killing Joke, but the material is well-focused, thanks to the succinct writing of band leader Anthony Esposito. "Let Down" is a great highlight.
