Ex Hex, the project from Helium and Wild Flag vocalist Mary Timony, are set to release their debut album Rips on 7 October in North America and 13 October worldwide, and they're streaming another cut from it titled 'Beast' today. It's three minutes and fifteen seconds of straight-forward, badass rock and roll, and it's more than worth your time (and it would make for a killer air guitar solo).
