Ex-Humans - 12"
Limited to 500 copies pressed on black vinyl! Ex Humans got two killer 7-inches under their belt via non-traditional labels for a (now ex-) Atlantan musician so if they're not on your radar yet you need to wake up and take note. If introductions are in order let's start with Josh Martin (vox/gtr) who, after several years as Carbonas' lead guitarist and an amazing performance on the self-titled Goner release, relocated to Brooklyn for a change of scenery. The Carbonas didn't last much longer so that decision seems to have paid off and gave Ex Humans a head start over other ex-Carbonas bands. The no-bullshit powerhouse trio is rounded out by Todd Martin and Jesse Martinez, who help summon murder punk's blood, guts and gore for the group's debut LP on Rob's House. Make no mistake, if you're looking for another Brooklyn loft-pop hipster band then Ex Humans aren't for you but if you're like us and think that the punk underground has swayed too far from what punk really is then these guys will be the breath of fresh air you've been gasping for. Recorded and mastered by Dave Rahn. Art by GG King.
