Brother Sister Hex Release End Times EP Tomorrow; Streaming in Full Now

Posted in audiObelisk, Whathaveyou on September 7th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

Tomorrow marks the release date of Denver, Colorado, heavy rockers Brother Sister Hex‘s new EP, End Times. The release is streaming in full now via Bandcamp — you can hear it below — and follows two prior “sessions” EPs issued in 2016 and 2015. End Times, which the band led into with the title-track as an initial single, is my first exposure to the band, but their high-desert-style rock is right when it nods toward Queens of the Stone Age as an influence. A little Songs for the Deaf is almost always good for the soul, at least in my experience. Definitely some of that vibe here.

Copious background follows, as sent along the PR wire. Please feel free to dig in:

Brother Sister Hex’s EP and title track single ‘End Times’

From Denver Colorado, BROTHER SISTER HEX unveil their highly anticipated 3rd EP ‘End Times’. A multifarious, multi-perspective journey through the range of emotions and uncertainty that comes with the current time we live in. Propelled by singer/guitarist Colfax Mingo’s soulful, mesmerizing vocals and thought-provoking lyrics – ‘End Times’ compelling sound is embodied by the complimentary dual guitars of Colfax Mingo and guitarist Patrick Huddleson; and the indelible rhythm section of bassist Drew Hicks and guest drummer Jordan Palmer (Plastic Daggers).

Recorded, mixed, and mastered with Pete De Boer at World Famous Studios in Denver – ‘End Times’ will bring to mind touches of the down tuned, dusty, swampy vibes of desert, stoner, and sludge rock; combined with the bluesy rawness and attitude of the 21st century garage rock revival. Bolstered with the grungy, noisy, fuzzy tones of early 90s alternative and the layered, moody and enigmatic sound of Radiohead – it should appeal to fans of Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey, The Black Keys, Early Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Dead Weather, Soundgarden, and Radiohead alike.

“Singer/Guitarist/Lyricist Colfax Mingo says of the song ‘End Times’; “Well, it’s really about perseverance. Initially about how Patrick and I can’t stop making music, but then more generally about how you have to keep pushing in a world that sometimes tries to discourage you. A funny thing is I always knew what the song was about but I didn’t push myself to finish the lyrics til we recorded.”

Brother Sister Hex was formed in 2014 by Colfax Mingo and Patrick Huddleson, who have been playing music together in various projects for over 10 years. This ties into the above quote and also why the band is called Brother Sister Hex. They’re stuck together like family.

Though Brother Sister Hex has released music for free in the past, but this is the first time they were able to spend the time in the studio to really create and push the music to where we knew it could go.

When our drummer amicably departed the band shortly before planning to go into the studio, Jordan Palmer from our good friends and Denver band Plastic Daggers stepped up to help us work up the songs and record them with us. His contributions to the album really took things up to another level and helped us capture the sound we have been going for since the beginning.
