about

"Fidgety punk of the post variety - sorta like a basement birthed and organically grown, less mechanical Erase Errata. Chock full of really distorted bass lines, stunted guitar spikes and dueling co-ed vocals. Weird guitar flavor that bends with a Spray Paint disjointedness. I'm at a loss to come up with a shit ton of hype here, but I will say that it should please fans of Stickers, Shopping, Screature and probably some other bands that start with letter S that I've forgotten." - Terminal Boredom

"On their latest release, Fleshed Out, 
Casual Hex sound inspired by the manic, mad-scientist focus of the laboratory. Songs foreground Nick Anderson’s low end-happy drums and Jessie Odell’s dirge-ing bass, which crackles with high-voltage fuzz. The rhythm section creates a charged, Frankensteinian foil against which Erica Miller’s sparse, tense guitar lines call to mind bubbling beakers and snapping diodes. Miller delivers her vocals in abrupt meter, pitch-shifted like the disguised voice of a ransom caller. Lyrics are neo-mystical hymns to the modern condition. On “Ego Sick,” Miller sings, “Send and receive, then question your stasis / If you think your emotions, you can bypass your relation.” - Sam Bovarnick, City Arts

"Casual Hex is not only one of the best band names in town, but one fully befitting this new-ish Seattle group’s witchy take on post-punk. Thanks to the strange chorus effect on front woman Erica Miller’s vocals, every line she sings sounds as though it’s being chanted by five people in a moonlit coven. Casual Hex flirts with full-on no-wave anarchy at times, bending anchor riffs out of yo-yoing waves of noise as they do on the up-tempo “Sacred Plush” and “Ego Sick,” but for the most part the band stays tightly wound around Jessie Odell’s crunchy, gothic bass lines. Those dark, driving dirges keep things on lock as Miller’s guitar ventures off into necromantic, warbling interludes—one of the trio’s signature moves best executed on standout tracks “Soul Sack” and “Skin Suit.” This latter song features the repeated chorus “Unzip my skin and rip me from limb to limb,” one of many delightfully freaky lines on this album, which include “Blood and guts that you can trust!” and “You can shift/You can heal/You can attract new vibrations.” - Kealton Sears, Seattle Weekly
