[GARAGE TERROR] It’s a good thing Memphis garage punks Ex-Cult dropped the “s” from the front of its name, because there’s nothing particularly sexy about the band’s steamrolling assault. Produced by Ty Segall to sound as if no one produced it all, the group’s eponymous debut album is an unrelenting roil of blown-out guitars, bullet-train drums and snotty, faux-English vocals. It’s thrilling in that youthful, “let’s pogo and elbow each other in the spine” sort of way, but lacks the hip-swiveling, grown-up grooviness of contemporaries like Thee Oh Sees and, well, Ty Segall. Lilacs and Champagne, the sampledelic side project of Grails members Emil Amos and Alex Hall, opens.
