Olympia punks Vexx screech and wail on the noisy track 'Clairvoyant'

In last week's In Rotation Not Normal Tapes honcho Ralph Rivera threw out some high praise for Olympia punk band Vexx, calling them "one of my favorites currently going, hyperbole notwithstanding." No doubt such intense feelings deserve an additional nod, in the form of a 12 O'Clock Track. Today's is "Clairvoyant" from the band's self-titled LP that came out earlier this year. Reminiscent of an unhinged Wipers track, the blaring, dark ripper is led by the all-out screech of Maryjane Dunphe as the nonstop guitar squeals and licks swirl around her like machetes sucked up into a tornado funnel. It's raw to the bone and devoid of any low-end, exactly how it should sound.
