The muses of La Musa: Ex Hex

Ex Hex, the DC power trio comprised of Mary Timony, Betsy Wright, and Laura Harris, have announced a new album, their first since the band’s 2014 breakthrough, Rips. Called It’s Real, the LP is due for release on March 22nd via Merge Records.

Described as “a reaction to the blown-out aesthetic of Rips,” It’s Real embraces layered vocal harmonies, art rock flourishes, and drawn-out codas that emphasize the band’s loud, glammy riffs. The trio re-teamed with Rips producer Jonah Takagi for the album, which is built upon “dozens” of guitar amps, including a bygone Rockman.
