Editorial Reviews

Brooklyn, NY's Exitmusic comprised of Devon Church and Aleksa Palladino (of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire") present their debut album, Passage. Passage is a collection of newly-written songs and some of their older tunes that received some new coats of paint. Here, the two tethers that make up Exitmusic's sound one stirring atmospherics, one of grandioise and thoughtful pop are let to bow further out than before. They are, however, also pulled into a tighter, sharper knot at the center.

The debut full-length release from this Brooklyn band is a huge leap forward from last year's EP.
"Passage" exudes an icy atmospheric beauty that manifests a tantalizingly moody enchantment,
holding the listener with a hauntingly mystic grip. Softly flowing electronic dreampop refrains
give way to powerful, explosive bursts of celestial flutter-noise--all held together by the stunning,
sometimes lovely, sometimes creepy vocals of Aleksa Palladino. This is an album of immense
depth and substance; with a bold, soaring grandiose dreamscape feel that will leave you wide-
eyed and breathless. Sometimes recalls Beach House, Cocteau Twins, EMA, Sigur Ros, The
Twilight Sad. Really exceptional, one of 2012's best so far.

I first came across Exitmusic through their nice rendition of David Bowie's "Space Oddity." The duo is composed of husband and wife team Aleksa Palladino (actress of Boardwalk Empire fame) & Devon Church. The band's first full-length album, PASSAGE, is a trip through spacey atmospheres and crystallized percussion. The best way to describe this band is perhaps by comparing Exitmusic to others; their music sounds like Sigur Ros covering music by Beach House. It's partly dream-pop, partly distorted electronics, and partly psychedelic alternative.

The excellent title track "Passage" serves as the introduction to the album, and it gives a good indication of what follows - soaring vocals over raw guitar, all punctuated by cymbal crashes. The song is packed with an explosive chorus that reminds me of Sigur Ros's final track on "( )". Exitmusic makes great use of dynamics; they make the most out of their time by lying low in quiet soundscapes and disrupting them with equally beautiful distortion. "The Modern Age" might have the most conventional melody, and it serves a strangely tangible track compared to the rest. PASSAGE feels like the score to an experimental movie; it conjures great, vivid images. It's a good album to close your eyes in a dark room and get lost in. The album is concluded by the wonderful "Sparks of Light," ending PASSAGE on one of its best songs.

PASSAGE isn't an album for everyone, but I think that those listeners who enjoy the aforementioned Beach House or Sigur Ros will really like Exitmusic's latest. Standout tracks: "Passage," "The City," and "Sparks of Light." This has been one of my favorite listens of 2012. Give it a chance.

This album should have more reviews. I'm surprised that it doesn't, with how beautiful and haunting it is. But, maybe that's why it's not being drooled over more by the reviewers--because unless you're full of teen (or new adult) angst and/or are listening at night, in one of those thoughtful moods, it's not going to really hit you right. That said, I've been listening to this album in the dark, when I'm doing one of my midnight writing sessions. It works. The songs are well-built. They're layered, haunting and epic compositions. The vocalists are emotional and their voices go well with the instrumentation. I love them.

I just got this album, so I'm still working through it. So far, "Passage," "Storms," and "White Noise" are my favorites. I'll update my review as I become more familiar with it.

I found 'Exitmusic' while listening to me 'Sigur Ros' station on pandora- and boy was I blown away.

This duo performs with so much emotion, I found myself lost in their created wonderland.

The musical arcs of their music is simply amazing- and extreme-

There is so much to say- but its hard to put into words this level of beauty.

If you like Sigur Ros and progressive rock- or even appreciate goosebump-inducing combonations and fascinating music- pick them up and spend some time getting lost.

It is time well spent.

I came across Exitmusic in a local publication late last year and the author of the article mentioned Passage by Exitmusic. In the article, there was a video by the band. After listening to it and checking out a few more clips on youtube, I was hooked. I eventually went out and bought the album right after Christmas. Passage is one of the most beautiful albums I have ever heard and certainly one of the best albums from 2012. The music of Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church reminded me a lot of Bat For Lashes and Sigur Ros, especially the later with the occasional foray into droning territorial (and not in a bad way either). I can listen to Passage from start to finish without skipping a single song. It is just a wonderful album. Really enjoyed the title track, "The Night" and "The Modern Age" in particular but every track is a delight to listen to. I really love Aleksa's vocals on "The Modern Age". I definitely recommend checking out this overlooked gem from 2012.
