Ex-Hex

Ex Hex is what your older brother’s friends listened to — “Roxy Roller” and “Virginia Plain” rumbling from the Kenwood in the basement. It’s what your babysitters listened to, and it’s what stuck with me.

Ex Hex is a power trio: guitar, drums, and bass. “Mary Timony has quietly started a new band, and their first song online isn’t quiet at all. Timony, last seen portraying a motel housekeeper in Mikal Cronin’s “Peace of Mind” video, has already played in an impressive array of indie-rock groups: most recently Wild Flag, but also ’90s luminaries Helium and Autoclave. Her latest outfit, Ex Hex, takes its name from the 2005 album she released with solo-artist billing, a move that perhaps coincidentally brings to mind Kathleen Hanna’s use of an old solo-project moniker for current ensemble the Julie Ruin. “Hot and Cold,” Ex Hex’s initial offering, is below, and it’s a guitar-blazing come-on with fuzzed-out power-pop DNA.”
