A Friday night show at Glasslands, setup by PopGun Booking, featured four great bands including Exitmusic, a duo of Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church. This Secretly Canadian band has been on the scene for a number of years, but recently signed to their new label and are slated to release their upcoming EP, From Silence. While we missed Exitmusic during their recent residency at Pianos, the show at Glasslands did not disappoint as they played six songs, two of which we had not heard before. Their first song, “The Sea,” filled the room with a complex, layered sound that immediately had the listener fully immersed. By the last song, a seven minute epic titled “Sparks of Light,” it was clear that Exitmusic has a captivating sound that will, no doubt, continue to evolve with each live performance.

This set was recorded with a pair of Schoeps Cardioid microphones clamped high on a column dead-center in the room. Derek, Glassland’s sound engineer, provided an incredibly well balanced feed which resulted in one of the best mixes I’ve heard from Glasslands. The sound quality is excellent and we hope you enjoy!

    Mixing dark, pulsing bass, wailing vocals and swirling washes of sound, “The Sea” is the perfect introduction to Exitmusic’s gorgeous little world. – instant tax solutions complaints
