Ex-Models, Seconds Pair for Split CD
Catherine Lewis reports:
Both of these bands hail from Brooklyn, NY, which seems to be quite the hotbed of punk/post-punk music these days. The Ex-Models have been playing together since 1998; their debut CD, Other Mathematics, was released last year on the Ace Fu label. Featuring two brothers on guitars, plus bass and drums, the Ex-Models pull from math-rock influences as well as punk. The Seconds feature drummer Brian Chase of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs; their debut record Y was released by 5RC last year.
Picture the Talking Heads but faster, and you'll get an idea of what you're in for with this CD-- or trust the words of My Pal God: "a swift battle of the herky-jerky variety that will leave your contemporaries breathless." Tracklist:
01 Ex-Models - "U Got What I Need (Shake)"
