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.

The first STREAM released in over three years, STREAM 88 is a departure for the Excepter STREAMS series.  Instead of a single track documenting a single show, STREAM 88 is separated into individual, titled tracks and represents an entire year of shows. A final STREAM? Remains to be seen, but consider this a farewell kiss from Excepter to NYC…
