Mary Timony led the great, underrated ’90s indie band Helium for years, and she’s Carrie Brownstein’s co-pilot in Wild Flag, which sadly appears to be on the shelf for now. But now Timony’s got a new project called Ex Hex, which takes its name from Timony’s 2005 solo album, and a glimmering, chugging rock song called “Hot & Cold,” which has some of the oblique mystery of Helium and some of the gasping glam-rock strut of Wild Flag. Listen to it below.
You can buy “Hot & Cold” at Ex Hex’s Bandcamp. They’ll play their first show tonight at D.C.’s Rock And Roll Hotel with Obits, Title Tracks, and Cane & The Sticks.
