Listening Post: The Exit–"Back to the Rebels"

The_exit_photo

The Exit’s Ben Brewer

This is one of my favorite tracks from the Black Rock Coalition’s 2006 compilation, Rock ‘n’ Roll Reparations, Vol. 1.  Great energy here, and you can hear several of their influences at play.  I particularly like the thick, dubby bass line in this song.

Check them out on MySpace, and look for a new album later this year.
