From Melbourne Australia, EXEK are proud to unveil their third album, “Some Beautiful Species Left”. Like their previous releases, “Some Beautiful Species Left” is the cultivation of numerous edits and overdubs, where once again EXEK subscribe to Brian Eno’s philosophy of the studio as an instrument. This MO allows the songwriting process to develop simultaneously alongside the recording process whilst privileging greater sonic control.
The result is a record difficult to pigeonhole but post punk is perhaps the easiest way to categories EXEK’s music - post modern and containing the defiance inherent within punk whilst incorporating elements of dub production, classical arrangements, hip hop and Krautrock rhythms and the use of kitchen appliances as instruments.
After last year’s successful tour of the US, EXEK embark on their first European visit in September 2019. The tour is presented by Upset The Rhythm, Puschen booking, and Future Folklore, and all dates can be found below.
‘Some Beautiful Species Left’ will be released on September 6th on SDZ (Europe), Digital Regress (USA), and Anti Fade (Aus). EXEK is pronounced ‘exec’, short for executive.
