Sure, at its roots, the musical rumblings produced by Memphis, Tenn., powerhouse Ex-Cult—formerly Sex-Cult—can be labeled as punk. But the fuel that really gives their engine juice is their influences of '60s psychedelia, '70s post-punk and '80s American hardcore, making a sound that kidnaps punk and takes it somewhere spacey, freaky and haunting. Featuring buzzy noise, dark lyrics, distorted surf guitar, and vocal effects that begin and then fade into the ether, Ex-Cult's latest album, Midnight Passenger—released in April—showcases the band's wild energy as well as the production expertise of prolific garage-rocker Ty Segall; the band recorded impressive single "Ties You Up" with him at his home studio. Also on the bill are fellow Segall protégés Zig Zags, as well as local punk acts Swamp Ravens and The Nods. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
