this came out last week. it's fucking good
The Ex being amazing? who da thunk it.
been listening to the second one they did with the ethiopiques chap a lot now it's sunny, that's grand. she's one of the best drummers about.
is that the Getachew Mekuria one from last year? it's really good yeah, feels more like a collab record than the first one which was a bit 'the ex with an african horn section' sometimes (though obv that is also good).
so much stuff they've put out worth listening to. maybe one of the best bands ever
i've not heard the first one with him but there's a track on spotify that's great. only listened to the best of, sonic youth one and the tortoise one after that, what's their best solo record?
only heard Turn and Catch My Shoe of them by themselves, which are the two most recent i think. would say Catch My Shoe is more fun but both are good
It's pretty much all you need, and I say that as someone who has a lot of their stuff
you're bringing the mood down
They were awesome.
interested in this
only ever heard Yann Tiersen's cover of state of shock but it kicked my ass so hard live. can't wait to hear this
I will pick up immediately. You can get Ex discs direct from the band's website, for very reasonable prices. Pay by PayPal and a package arrives from the Netherlands a few days later.
Including all the side projects the have an almost Fall-esque amount of releases. Personal favourites are the first album they did with Getatchew Mercuria and the Ex Orkest album. But it's all good. There was a 30 year double best-of released last year (or maybe the year before). Whilst I generally wouldn't recommend best-ofs it's a very good intro to the band.
