Ex-Cult – “Cigarette Machine”
Memphis-based Ex-Cult make the kind of aggressive rock tracks that I want to listen to while walking through a crowded subway station, along with the Jesus Lizard and the Stooges. That is not to say that Ex-Cult sound like a throwback, but they do echo a similar sentiment. “Cigarette Machine,” the title track from Ex-Cult’s upcoming EP, boasts a kind of punctual cacophony, its sludgy garage sound parting momentarily to make space for spitting lyrical streams. Listen below.
