Zoo Psychology (Frenchkiss Records)
By: Alex Steininger
Fifteen songs, twenty minutes of music, and a lot of heart-stopping action, New York's Ex. Model's sophomore full-length, Zoo Psychology is a manic, mathematically designed post-punk explosion of noise and chaos. Brutally engaging, the screaming fury of their songs and melody-lacking, charged rhythms come crashing down on you, kicking your ass over and over again until you concede to them. And from there, it isn't smooth sailing either. Hard to digest and even harder to not feel agitated when blasting, Zoo Psychology draws you in and spits you back out without a second look - and ensures you have fun in the process. I'll give it a B-.
