Stoked on this new record from instru-metal supergroup EX EYE! This is a must-listen for fans of post-rock, drone, doom metal, black metal, and even the outskirts of post-punk (think This Heat). Its members include some of the best contemporary experimental/improvisational musicians, and it shows by how solid these tracks are for LIVE takes. I’ve always wished for Colin Stetson to go a little heavier, and my wish came true – metal saxophone is officially a thing. Check out the full album stream below and this week’s eclectic in-stock list (although there’s only one album on it with freakin’ METAL SAXOPHONE \m/). -MLE

EX EYE – S/T LP
Listen: Full Album Stream!
EX EYE makes music of power, control, motion and intention; music composed with precise, clockwork intricacy and ecstatic abandon. It is hard, heavy music – aggressive, cathartic, and thrilling. The instruments fluidly exchange roles; melody, harmony, riff, engine, anchor, fuel.

Gathered at renowned, experimental saxophonist Colin Stetson’s behest in 2016, EX EYE consist of Stetson along with Greg Fox (Liturgy) on drums, Shahzad Ismaily (Secret Chiefs 3, Ceramic Dog) on synths and Toby Summerfield on guitar. Upon their formation, the group appeared at a series of prestigious festivals including Roskilde Festival (Denmark), Red Bull Music Academy (Montreal), CTM Festival (Germany), and Eaux Claires Fest (US).

Recorded live at EX EYE member Shahzad Ismaily’s Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn, NY (Blonde Redhead, Damien Rice, Okkervil River, Son Lux, Pussy Riot), the debut showcases a band that is without question the sum of its parts, as each player contributes not only their own particular technical prowess and expertise but also their signature compositional character. EX EYE make incredibly complex yet beautifully dramatic and emotive music which eclipses usual expectation of style or genre and takes the listener on a cathartic, thrilling journey to total transcendence.” -Relapse
