The Ex: "Eoleyo"

Following the departure of founding vocalist G.W. Sok, Dutch post-punk group The Ex returns with their first proper album since 2004's Turn. With the addition of Zea's Arnold de Boer at the mic, Catch My Shoe rides the same raw adrenaline that put these enfants terribles on the map when they started thrashing away in dingy Amsterdam basements over thirty years ago (read: they haven't stopped). "Eoleyo", an Ethiopian Gurage standard incanted by drummer Katherina Bornefeld, continues an extended flirtation with the country's music that peaked with their 2006 CD collaboration with Ethiopian saxophonist Getatchew Mekuria.
