Ex, The & Brass Unbound – “Enormous Door” – [Ex Records]

The-Ex-Brass-Unbound-EX1

A batch of uptempo rockers featuring the aggressive, driving guitars/drums/vocals of The Ex, fleshed out this time by a 4-man horn section (Brass Unbound.) It doesn’t hurt that the horn section includes Mats Gustafsson and Ken Vandermark, relentless collaborators and stalwarts of the international avant-jazz scene. The music does veer off into jazzier territory here and there, but for the most part you can expect to hear big doses of guitar riff weirdness, busy drumming, and odd lyrics from The Ex with an added punch from the horn guys. Good and noisy and I think it works.
