Last night, Mary Timony’s badass garage rock power trio Ex Hex made their late-night TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and banged through two of the songs on their ridiculously fun debut album Rips. On the show proper, they knocked out “Don’t Wanna Lose,” and then they played their first single “Hot And Cold” (which Meyers weirdly and perhaps wishfully referred to as a “hit”) as an online bonus. The casual asskickery of the Ex Hex live experience doesn’t translate perfectly to a televised performance, but it’s enough to give you the basic idea. Seriously, though, go see this band live. Both performances are below.
Rips is out now on Merge.
