DC power rock outfit Ex Hex recently released its second album “It’s Real,” and oh man, is is full fun, catchy head-banging tracks that just make you want to dance. It’s full of 70s-era garage rock hard riffs and seriously can’t put this record down. Listen to “Rainbow Shiner” and you’ll be instantly hooked. I quickly snatched this on vinyl the other day and it’s been on the turntable playing non-stop.
From the band:
On It’s Real, the group’s second album, Ex Hex’s commitment to larger-than-life riffs and unforgettable hooks remains intact, but the garage-y, post-punk approach that defined their debut album Rips has grown in scale and ambition. On first listen, you might think you’ve unearthed a long-lost LP carved from the space where crunch-minded art rock and glitter-covered hard rock converge, an event horizon at the intersection of towering choruses and swaggering guitars.
Ex Hex will kicking off the “It’s Real” tour at the Richmond Music Hall at Capital Ale House on April 2 with Moaning and Positive No.
