Ex-Breathers – “Pocket” (Stereogum Premiere)

Some of our favorite albums this year get so much across in so little time. Say Yes To Love by Perfect Pussy clocks in around 24 minutes; Deep Fantasy by White Lung is barely 23. Florida hardcore band Ex-Breathers fall into that category — their EP, ExBx, packs 12 songs into 11 and a half minutes, and they don’t waste a second. Take “Pocket,” for example: 44 seconds of charging guitars, David Yow-influenced yelps, and still plenty of unpredictable twists and turns. If you have three quarters of a minute to spare — and c’mon, you do — give it a listen below.
