Since moving to Austin from Chicago nearly five years ago, Joe Pug’s kept a fairly low local profile, focusing instead on extensive touring while letting his home serve as more of a songwriting haven. That concentration worked well for 2012 sophomore effort The Great Despiser, rolling melodic roots across sharp songwriting that stares down ambiguities both cultural and emotional behind his easy drawl. At the Armadillo museum and amphitheater, Pug lays down freshly recorded material in anticipation of a new LP next year.
