Ex Hex, the new band of Helium and Wild Flag’s Mary Timony, is seriously my new favorite band. They’re loud, they’re fun, and every single song is two and a half minutes of churning guitars and howling vocals. Rips, their debut due out on Merge next month, is gonna be a hell of a record, and I feel damn lucky that I’ve gotten to see them twice this year, with a third set coming up in a couple of weeks.
Turn this one up loud. (Make sure your boss isn’t in the office first.)
