Bext Exes: Cactus tape

Best Exes is a new group consisting of Jim Cherewick (Congress, Wicker Chairs), Erin Davis (Failed Flowers, Bad Indians), Maria Nuccilli (Deadbeat Beat, Outrageous Cherry), and Linda Jordan. The songs seem gentle and easygoing, but the lyrics can be pretty bitter, as they’re often about breakups and drinking. It’s kind of tense, but it’s relaxing and easy to listen to. Even at its most raucous (“Rock ‘N’ Roll Liquor Store”), it doesn’t seem abrasive or angsty. Fred Thomas recorded this and played bass on one song, and if you’re a fan of bands he’s recorded recently such as Rebel Kind and Bonny Doon, you’ll be all over this. Listen to the whole thing at Bandcamp, and purchase a tape via Palm Tapes.
