The Hex Dispensers, Winchester Mystery House. 2009. For LP.
Austin’s The Hex Dispensers just put out their second LP, Winchester Mystery House on on of my favorite labels, Douchemaster, home to the equally excellent Davilla 666. Members of the band have collectively been in at least 10 other bands, including another one of my favorite things, Seattle’s Tractor Sex Fatality. Hex sounds like a cranked up Jim Carroll driving by your house in a hearse doing 80 in a school zone with Johnny Ramone riding shotgun. The bands 2009 record, Winchester, is yet another strong contender for my favorites records of 2009. Hex has delivered some absolute throw-back, full-throttle punk rock ear candy for all. At least those of us with classy ears.
