For the last twelve years, Brooklyn’s Excepter has wandered through a strange, sometimes terrifying music-scape of their own creation. On last year’s two-track album, Christisland, synth beats propel an otherwise meandering groove through a sinister jungle of noise, dub, and drone. With new release Familiar and accompanying single “Maids,” John Fell Ryan and company seem a turn for the sunny-side with 8-bit squelch brightening the band’s dark corners. With these tracks as a jumping off point, Excepter find their way between moments of cohesion and confusion, making it up as they go.
