D.C. rock ‘n’ roll trio Ex Hex has always had one foot in the 1970s, but its latest cover jumps into the decade with both.
“All Kindsa Girls,” the catchy opener on The Real Kids’ 1977 debut, was an anthem in Boston’s budding punk-rock scene. The Real Kids were formed by John Felice, who had played in The Modern Lovers early on, and this song later became the name of a documentary about The Real Kids’ evolution.
Ex Hex has covered “All Kindsa Girls” live before and their version also showed up on Merge Records’ limited-edition Or Thousands of Prizes collection, but this is the first it’s been released digitally, according to NME.
