Ex Models – Zoo Psychology

It’s hard not to be a little jaded when confronted by yet another post-punk band from Brooklyn who write songs called “Sex Automata”. Ex Models adhere to the school of spleen, rather than groove, and skid through 15 songs in 20 bracing minutes. The dehumanised yelp of Devo is plainly a big influence, and there’s plenty to admire about a band who think polygonally and seem to punctuate with nothing but apostrophes. Still, unless you find the Liars depressingly linear, there are better no-wave torchbearers to investigate right now.
