Australian group EXEK will release a new album, ADVERTISE HERE, on February 4 via Castle Face. As label boss and head Oh See John Dwyer notes in the press release, they make twitchy, paranoid post punk that recalls "Brian Eno, White Fence, PiL, Full Circle, ESG, all things Geoff Barrows, Eroc, Lard Free, and music of free weirdos everywhere."

You can get a taste right now via "(I'm After) Your Best Interest," which has a bit of a Wire feel, too. If you dig arty, claustrophobic pop, this will be right up your dark alley. Listen, and read Dwyer's full bio for the album, below.

Gliding in on the twin engine discordant tones we’ve come to love from EXEK comes their new transmission, Advertise Here.

Beats bumping up thru a flapping spring reverb
Gilded production choices
Stripped bass bubbling in the cauldron
With each pass of the witch’s ladle, words float in the steam over the cacophonous concoction
The coven that croons together slays together
With every layer peeling back on our ear’s tongue we will exclaim “wicked”
Perhaps their strongest effort yet

The twin engines reappear now, tardy
Guitar and synthesis, rounded edges, worn and ever so slightly fuzzed out
Perfection
This LP strives for new lyrical highs in my opinion
Pop at an arm’s length
Thru a greasy lens
A conversation
A conversation on drugs
A passing comment that sticks
an utterance from the death bed
Reminiscent of Brian Eno, White Fence, PiL, Full Circle, ESG, all things Geoff Barrows, Eroc, Lard Free, and music of free weirdos everywhere
This one is the mossy titled deck of a half submerged shipwreck
A green light in a red room
A lump of clay
The end of the night when you think “perhaps I should have left ages ago”
But it’s too late now…you’re in too deep…might as well have one more dance

This LP is leaping even further out into the unknown for EXEK
A trip indeed
Full of hits with zero diss
and lots of hiss on no near miss
