Exek
Some Beautiful Species Left

Broadly taking a post-punk template for their music, but infusing it with elements of dub, classical music and krautrock, Melbourne band EXEK return with their third studio record Some Beautiful Species Left. Thematically concerning the human-driven degradation of nature, it was specifically composed in the studio, during the recording process itself.

EXEK
Ahead Of Two Thoughts

Melbourne’s EXEK buck the trend for every Australian band to have a record released in the 2010’s by not being a psych-rock outfit. In fact, they’re an intriguing and smart group with shades of ESG, Public Image Limited and Melbourne royalty The Birthday Party. Tracks like ‘Weight Loss (Henry’s Dream)’ have more groove in their little finger than King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard had across the seven million albums they released in 2017.

EXEK
Biased Advice

Melbourne band Exek have their first full-length album to show off. Their sound is not a sunny one: instead, this music feels like it was made in some shady garage before a hard rain, late at night. The production on these post-punk songs is laced with dub, with a coldly groovy effect. Biased Advice is out on Another Dark Age.
