Ex-Heir is the musical project of John Mal from San Francisco. After releasing some music in 2017 and then again in 2021, he returned earlier this year with a new sound on the improvisational album Wislawa Ritual. Changing it up again, the Not Yet tape showed a new direction that was more punk and much heavy on the industrial elements. All of that led up to the new album out via Body Musick a month ago. Body Scam is a harsh electro LP with 9 tracks that rip and tear at the textures, with Trent Reznor style vocals.
