Hexes and Ohs

Listening to “Alive Until Saturday Night” by Hexes and Ohs made me want to pull out my New Order albums from high school and get back into that groove again, but of course, they’re on vinyl! Like I have a turn-table… besides the one I got for my 12th birthday in 1983, which is probably in my parents’ basement somewhere. For better or worse, their other downloadable track below, “This and Other Distances,” calls to mind Death Cab for Cutie rather than the sounds from when sequencers were young. Hexes and Ohs, a Montreal duo with an ’05 album, Goodbye Friend, Welcome Lover, and maybe another coming soon, are another great suggestion from Dawntread (she sent us Canasta from last week).

  1. “Alive Until Saturday Night” = Takes guts to start off a song with that guitar and drum…you set yourself up for negative comparisons to New Order’s “Ceremony.”
    “This and Other Distances” = more like Postal Service than Death Cab….picky, picky, I know.

  2. not sure about the distinction between death cab and postal service, this and other distances kind of reminded me of “life in a northern town”, which record I had on vinyl when I was 12! thanks for the reco, joe!
