Never miss another 'Ex Hex' show
Ex Hex, Rattle
Ex Hex shared their latest album, It's Real, via Merge Records in March. The power trio's commitment to larger-than-life riffs and unforgettable hooks remain intact, but the garage-y, post-punk approach that defined their debut release, Rips, has grown in scale and ambition.
Ex Hex were already one of America's best guitar bands - but on It's Real, their musical savvy has thrillingly combined with anything-goes curiosity, studio experimentation, and a dedication to refinement, resulting in an album that's ready to be played at maximum volume.
This event takes place at Village Underground, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Washington DC alt-rock hotshot Mary Timony has been bashing ears in high style for a couple of decades, previously with Helium, Autoclave and Wild Flag, and now with Ex Hex, whose hit-after-hit debut LP is just deliriously great fun – this has got to be the air-guitar album of the year.
Drummer Laura Harris and bassist Betsy Wright join Timony for a power trio that seems intent on celebrating and rejuvenating some of rock’s enduring pleasures: here are 12 succinct, speedy, riff-happy gems smothered in snarling backtalk and shameless, glorious guitar solos.
Ex Hex sit somewhere near the middle of a Go-gos/Ramones/Sleater-Kinney Venn diagram, and join latterday power-pop aces like Warm Soda, the Love Triangle and Sheer Mag in making some of the most endlessly repeat-listenable should-be-hits of recent years.
Ex Hex tour dates
A duo from Nottingham featuring Katharine Brown and Theresa Wrigley, Rattle make hypnotic and fairly darn unique music with only two drumkits and vocals. Active since 2011, their songs have a remarkable way of burrowing into your brain via repetition and layered rhythms/melodies/vocal motifs. It’s textbook minimalism on one hand, but with a weird pop sensibility, and a bonus postpunk/no wave type feel. You can even dance to it if you like.
