Ex Hex – Its Real (album review)

Rock meets roll on a fantastic follow up to 2014’s Rips. This album stays true to the debut; a garage-punk album built on meaty riffs; but opens the palette a bit. It feels as if there’s more space and time throughout the album, almost as if they don’t feel as rushed to get their message across. The

Diamond Drive is pure class; Mary Timony’s guitar work is pure magic and the breathy harmonies are so well done. Cosmic Cave is another gem; like The Ronettes playing some sort of spaced out garage rock. Towards the back end, Radiate really illustrates that space-time continuum I mentioned in the first paragraph. Just a brilliant track made by pros.

It feels weird to say that Ex Hex had a sound after just one album, but I’ll say it nonetheless. On their sophomore album, they took that sound; added a few elements and made it better.

I do trust all of the concepts you’ve introduced for your post.
They are really convincing and can certainly
work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners.

May just you please prolong them a bit from next time?
Thanks for the post.
