8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 October 2010
This 23rd record from New York vocal/electronics outfit Excepter is a pretty crazy affair that creates double confusion due to the fact that the A-side plays inside out (or is it back to front?). Can't work out if it's a pressing fault or what but the B-side plays normal style?? Strange. Other than that it's business as usual for this mysterious experimental crew with four tracks recorded at various times in various live/recording studio settings. It kicks off with a strange dubby effort that is appropriately spaced out and loopy (not mental - I mean it's based on a load of short loop samples) before going even dubbier and minimalist on the second track. The B-side opener is a little livelier with queasy melodies playing over a bunch of weird vocal outbursts and some tasteful 808 beats before heading back into mysterious abstract dub territory. Well strange business I say. It's worth mentioning that the 12" comes with a download code for the 'Tank Tapes'. So that's over an hour of bonus downloadable material...well fair.
