All throughout her conversation with Stevie Zoom, Mary Timony kept mentioning how Ex Hex "just came together". You'd be forgiven for thinking a band so fierce and tight could never be assembled so serendipitously, but when you've got a trio of D.C. punk lifers in the same room, there's no other possible outcome. Timony, Betsy Wright, and Laura Harris have spent the last year prepping and touring behind their excellent debut album, Rips, an album that's as fun as it is ferocious. When they dropped into KEXP's studio last fall, the trio's collective decades of experience was on display as they burned through their set with an affable, melodic charm and a pace that could only come from a bunch of sweaty rock club veterans. Watch the trio kick out four jams from Rips below.
