8/10 Brett Staff review, 18 March 2010
Losing their singer of thirty years ain't shit to The Ex. Out goes G.W. Sok, in comes Arnold de Boer and on, seamlessly, goes the wiry post-punk fusion which has served them so well these past few decades. They've often been compared with The Fall (largely for their longevity, no doubt), often with Fugazi (largely for their ethics, no doubt) but for my money their sound has generally fallen somewhere between the two, with curveballs thrown by prolonged periods spent under the influence of Eastern European folk, Ethiopian music and various other colourful forms. Here they'e playing it pretty straight with 'Maybe I Was the Pilot', a growly mid-tempo grower built on an insistent groove which provides a platform for the three guitars trading jabs above. 'Our Leaky Homes' is less controlled, more immediate and equally as solid with its trebly soloing and cutting chords. Bring on a new LP, says I.. But buy the 30 Years of The Ex compilation in the meantime!
