Triple Hex

Kind of a nasty, dirty, sexually predatory vibe going here in this new EP from Brooklyn's Triple Hex...that's partly due to Dave Hex's menacingly reverbed voice, partly to the stripped down, back to basics guitar-bass-drums and partly (mostly) to lyrics like "I don't want no love songs/I just want to fuck" (to a kind of pogoing rockabilly beat).

Interesting, Matt Verta-Ray (the other half, with Jon Spencer, of Heavy Trash) produced...he and Hex got a really intense, pitch-black, twisted gothic sound out of it.

Anyway, recommending with reservations...certainly not with children in the car...
