EXCEPTER

WRITTEN BY
Mike Powell

Excepter was one of the more unpredictable beasts of Brooklyn’s loose experimental music scene during the early and mid-2000s. Though never as friendly as Animal Collective, the aesthetic connection between the bands was clear: Like AC, Excepter strove to make squiggly, weird, caveman music that sounded like it was evolving out of its own muck before your ears. Their performances tended to be half-terrible, half-astonishing, and almost all improvised, but that was part of their gamble with greatness: Nobody cleared a room with as much style as they did.

Avey Tare: We all kind of experienced some sort of musical progression together. Excepter was always music that was around for a while. Like the soundtrack to going out.
