Brooklyn's post-punk quartet, Ex Models are one of the forerunning champions of the new New York Underground, as recently determined by the most influential and historically sound magazines and newspapers. The Ex Models have strived to bring an edge of authenticity back to the NY underground scene. Oft compared to greats such as Devo, Talking Heads and Shellac, they are already the stuff of a many a Top 10 List.

"New York noise that's more Sonic Youth than Strokes... a very loud, very strange and playfully destructive album of explosions attached to titles... It sounds as if Ex Models are driving through the window of a jewelry store with the emergency brake still on, and in every track they back up and do it again and again and again... a funny and relentless advertisement for atonal living." - Rolling Stone

"At last the no-wave revival has produced a band with the genuine weirdness to match the original late-70's movement and the furious chops to follow such later jazzcore bands as John Zorn's Naked City... The disc last only 20 minutes, but it would take weeks to unravel all the hypertense riffs and squeals." - Blender
