Rex

Rex, collectively as a group, know how to construct a good story. Much in the tradition of the Good Shepherd as mentioned in the song Dm from their freshly minted E.P. They weave a tale of unrequited love and the choices that a lover faces, lose the love of their life or cross the river, i.e. death, to be with their lover in eternity. What a tangled web they weave, tangled up in blue to be sure, much like another good storyteller, Bob Dylan.

I engaged with Rex immediately when I heard their single, Lovers Like We Used To Be, and wore out the proverbial needle in iTunes listening to it. Listening to the whole E.P. is a five times better. Specifically the five songs on the E.P. Rex. Where do I start to count the ways that I groove to this music? Thumping and magical bass. Understated but powerful drums. Grunge guitar, distorted, dissonant, echoes of Loe Reed. Smart lyrics delivered with demonstrative vocal cords, including a guest spot by Silia Hollestelle that has its own magic going on.

Last but not least, am I at five yet? As I was saying, last but not least, I would love to see this band live. They know how to build a song, and that would engage the audience, and I am sure it would be a memorable night. Please come to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, as soon as the pandemic is over.

In the meantime, everyone that reads this should go and listen to this beautiful recording. I am going to listen to it again for the umpteenth time.
