Straight from Washington, D.C. and the leadership of former Helium and Wild Flag member Mary Timony comes Ex Hex. The three piece band is all about garage-pop: tight performances, great female vocals, and mid-fi guitars with a post-punk edge.
Rips is their debut album and the tracks are hot and lean. Don’t Wanna Lose is a prime example. It’s riff happy with great wah-wah from the guitar, a driving beat, and keeping it all under 3 minutes. Love it.
