From Melbourne, Australia, EXEK will embark on their first European tour in September 2019. They are promoting their third album, “Some Beautiful Species Left”, out on SDZ in Europe, Digital Regress in the USA, and Anti-Fade in Australia. Post-punk is perhaps is the easiest term to categories the album. Yet the music contains elements of dub production, Classical arrangements, hip-hop or krautrock rhythms, and the use of various odd instruments like field recordings and kitchen appliances. Think Swell Maps meets ESG. EXEK is pronounced ‘exec’, short for executive.

EXEK aus Melbourne spielen einen dubbig, zerfaserten Postpunk, den Jah Wobble nicht besser hätte halluzinieren können: klapprige Rhythmusskelette, pumpende Basslines und haunted Atmospheres tragen Albert Wolskis dunkle Narrationen wie Vignetten von Dimension zu Dimension und evozieren den Geist von PIL’s Death Disco, frühem 4AD-Gerumpel oder This Heat zu Gast im Black Ark. Doch anders als Contemporaries wie Sun Araw oder Pocahaunted, verweilt der Dub EXEKs in einer moody und sonnenlos dahinwabernden Zeitblase, die nur darauf wartet, endlich zu bersten.
