The Sex has finally put out a second album. It's been since 2009 since the first album was released. After a brief hiatus with members moving about the country for couple of years, it was time to get back together. It's been a long time coming but the moment has finally come for everyone to hear how much time and effort The Sex has put into writing these songs. Each track has a different sound, vibe and meaning to it. The album has been called Wet Brain for many different reasons. Not saying that the members are alcoholics, but what The Sex has been through over the years would make anyone feel a little wet brained. So please sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy the sounds of The Sex

" Phoenix's the Sex have put out a six-song record entitled Wet Brain, and it seethes with fast and ripping punk. The band is one chick and three dicks and front to back the record is solid. when you see' em, make sure to get a pin or t-shirt that states "I'm just here for the Sex" ..."
Wez Lundry - Thrasher Magazine - Notes from the Underground
"A convincing adaptation of late-'70s British street punk, Wet Brain puts The Sex's pile-driving rhythm section (led by the acrobatic drumming of Chadd Curry) and crunchy riffing and melodic flair of guitarist O'Brien on full display. Of course, each band's debut platter has one surprising revelation, and this record's belongs to singer Kate Mexal. A blue-chip barker in a live setting, Mexal delivers a set of more refined, but no less intense, vocals on Wet Brain, somewhat reminiscent of the Avengers' Penelope Houston. Now, with a stable lineup and an exemplary recording, The Sex appears ready to finally get on the radar."
