Don't Wanna Lose
EX HEX Rips (Merge)
Emerging from the ashes of the under-rated White Flag comes Ex Hex an all-girl, Washington based trio who infuse their songs with a mixture of riot-grrrl and glam-rock sensibilities. Its enthusiastic, exuberant power-punk, played by a band of thirty-somethings who are effortlessly reliving their youth. These girls have made one of the albums of the year, putting young guitar bands to shame in the process.
