Hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot are ready and raring to go with some new buried treasures: recent, under-the-radar albums that you need to hear. They also talk with the rock trio Ex Hex, led by Mary Timony, about their new record, plus the group gives a live performance.
This week on the show, one of the coolest (& one of the first performers your host Damian ever saw live), MARY TIMONY of the band EX HEX sits down for a chat. Listen in as the two talk about Mary going from a DC hardcore kid who didn't feel like she fit in, to finding a home in Boston Indie Rock, to touring world wide with the godly HELIUM. THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED (ALSO, don't miss EX HEX’s FANTASTIC new album "It's Real” on Merge Records)!!!
