Excepter moved to Chicago September of 2018. Upon our arrival, Matt Mehlan (Skeletons, Shinkoyo) — fellow vet of the Brooklyn 00s scene — invited us to an artist’s residency at The Ace Hotel Chicago. The conditions of the residency were simple: spend a free night in the hotel, make some art, and produce something the hotel’s marketing department could share on social media. A good excuse to get some recording in and maybe catch some “Shining” vibes, so the band accepted.
We checked in to our room and set up our studio on the windowsill, (which overlooked the local Google headquarters across the street.) We jammed on a track, and dubbed out into a drone, blowing harps in the shower. Shot a video. Took a band photo. Had a drink at the bar. Watched a movie. (Ken Russell’s “The Debussy Film” from whence we took the title.) Checked out at 11:00.
Audio and video recorded September 16, 2018 at Ace Hotel Chicago as part of its artist-in-residence program.
The first new studio recording released by the band since 2014’s Familiar LP.
