Excepter Debt Dept
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Paw Tracks
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
The fourth record (and Paw Tracks debut) from Brooklyn’s Excepter is by far the creepiest offering from the experimental performance troupe, and finds the six-piece conditioning its decayed jams of electronic scree and industrial hiss into a scary, yet sexy-sounding beast. Abundant in nihilistic/surrealistic overtones all at once, tracks like “Burgers” and “Any and Every” insert dub and pop sensibilities into the mix, usually centered on a programmed, Whitehouse-style groove mashed with dilating synth bass and choppy beats. Ditto for “Kill People,” a bone-chilling romp of shouting, echoing vocals and pulsating clatter that sounds like an out-pop dance hit from the darkest corner of the universe.
