Vex Ruffin has just released his second EP entitled ‘Eulogy’ which Stones Throw Records is currently making available as a free download. The new work is a follow up to his debut effort, the ‘Crash Course EP’ and picks up where ‘Crash Course’ left off, with the minimalist pop of ‘Secret Weapon’, the dancey post-punk of ‘Perfect Congestion’ and the goth, dark wave title track. Like ‘Crash Course’, all of the tracks on ‘Eulogy’ were written, performed and recorded solely by Vex. Stones Throw plans on releasing a vinyl edition of ‘Eulogy’ as well as a third, as-yet untitled EP this summer followed by Vex’s full length debut later on in the year.
Vex’s live band will be playing a series of shows in Austin at the South by Southwest music conference, including the official Stones Throw showcase on March 13th. With the addition of drummer Liv Marsico (Cold War Kids), the four-piece band brings to life songs that were previously only performed solo by Vex in his studio. The band will also be playing a warm up show at Stones Throw’s bi-monthly party “56” in Los Angeles tonight.
