Title: Alternation
Format: CD
Label: 5RC
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Half-recorded in one blizzard, and completed by the next, Alternation is a years-in-the-making, tossed-off-in-a-moment exploration of the difference between EXCEPTER live on stage and EXCEPTER alone at home and the goal to eradicate the distinction between the two. Double the length and twice the depth of past EXCEPTER releases, Alternation is EXCEPTER looking both ways, a geometric expansion around all the territories marked so far in their brief discography: the primal death trips of Ka, the noise pop tropics of Vacation, the long drone goodnight of Throne, the cool electro doom of Self Destruction and the blasted steam cycle of Sunbomber." - 5RC. Double LP available soon on Fusetron!

Title: Steps: Live At La Sala Rosa
Format: CDR
Label: Abandon Ship
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Official bootleg of the live concert on June 23rd, 2006 at the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival, Montreal, Quebec. Features the four-man, Alternation-era band sharing the stage for the first time with current member Lala. Opening with a cover of "Cocaine Blues" and bleeding into recognizable album tracks like "Knock Knock" and "Ice Cream Van" this set overflows with the spectral, slow-burn electro-improv for which they are known. 99% unreleased." -Abandon Ship

Title: The Stand
Format: One-Sided Picture Disc 12
Label: Dekorder
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
“Volume 6 in Dekorders series of highly limited Hybrid-Vinyl 12" releases to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the label. It comes out simultaneously with Vol. 5 (Experimental Audio Research) and 7 (Black To Comm). Previous entries in the series had been exclusive releases by Pye Corner Audio, Ensemble Economique, Kemialliset Ystävät and Alien Radio.

Future contributions will feature new & exclusive recordings by Leyland Kirby, Bill Kouligas (PAN Records) and Vindicatrix. Hybrid-Vinyl is a newly devised combination of a Picture-Disc on one side and a regular vinyl release on the other. The audio will be cut into the black vinyl side to utilise the superior audio quality of classic vinyl (compared to the often weaker sounding picture disc pressings).

Excepter is the creation of No-Neck Blues Band member John Fell Ryan founded in 2002. Their records have been released on labels such as Load, Fusetron and Animal Collectives Paw Tracks. Most of their improvisational live shows have been recorded and released on the bands website. A new album will be coming out this year on the Blast First (petite) label.

The Stand includes three new recordings featuring Lala Harrison Ryan and John Fell Ryans son John Victory. Victory was only 18 months old when he performed his vocals. The Fence was originally used as the soundtrack to their piece in the Museu Berardo exhibit in 2012 (Link: onovooficio.museuberardo.pt/excepter).

Highly collectable vinyl-only release (no repress!) on a new format. Cut by Lupo at Calyx Mastering.” - Dekorder.

Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Recorded live at Death by Audio NYC, October 2nd, 2009, on occasion of the You Are Here “Maze” festival, curated/created by Trouble (Laura Paris and Sam Hillmer (Zs)). Within the ad-hoc labyrinth, Excepter performed obscured to the audience and alienated from each other, starting early and playing late. Shares title with a Philip K. Dick novel in which an isolated group of space colonists consider the absolute as their mutual hallucination crumbles around them. Contains Excepters psychotropic cover of Mecca Normals “Fallen Skier.” Previously released in different form as STREAM 64. Special 2010 tape edit by Robert Girardin (Jaws.) pro dubbed and imprinted cassette includes mp3 download" - Dog Daze.

Title: Christisland
Format: LP
Label: Escho
Country: Denmark
Price: $18.00
Limited to 500 copies. "As the collapse of the myths merely created new myths, the meltdown of the music industry just sprinkled new music onto the surface of vigilantism. It is somewhere between music and myth that American Excepter reside. For years the band has bent, performed and examined every physical law that the inner ear has drawn about how and why sounds are composed into music. Today they stand as pioneers of the undergrounds mixed gases that ultimately form the chemical backbone of our culture. To define their sound, beat and arrangement is just as difficult as answering the question whether Excepter is deconstruction or self-destruction. In their true mythical language it seems as if the band itself only navigates by the imploding stars. The Christisland EP is their first return, it was recorded in the summer of 2012 during the bands stay in Copenhagen, and is released in collaboration with Cejero." - Escho.

"This recording is designed for obsolete systems to restrict listening to only those with a tactile awareness of intra-machine warfare. Ever heard of crap car stereos, undead ghetto blasters, ten year old orbs, infrared light table dancers, ultraviolet ops, driving slow over potholes, boredom research? This is not practice. This is training. Recorded in one hour live to stereo at 382 Jeff Street." - Excepter.

Title: Self Destruction
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
Players: John Fell Ryan: Vocals, Programming, Processing, Synth; Dan Hougland: Programming, Synth, Echo; Caitlin Cook: Vocals, Echo; Calder Martin: Vocals, Guitar, Percussion; Nathan Corbin: Synths. "Self Destruction" was recorded in the winter of 2004 and mixed, edited and reprocessed mostly in the winter of 2005. Self Destruction is the first Excepter record to be feature multi-track recording and overdubbing. Outside of Dan Houglands drum programming and a few vision directives from producer John Fell Ryan, the playing is entirely improvised by the group. Self Destruction is also the first Excepter record to prominently feature the polyphonic synthesizer playing of Nathan Corbin. The husband-wife duo of Caitlin Cook and Calder Martin make the final statement on the album as they take sole vocal duties on the last track, Your House. This recording has been edited short for maximum sonic impact on vinyl." - Recording Notes. "First off, Self Destruction is a house record. Perhaps more in spirit than in its realized form, but if that sounds like a joke, stop reading. New Yorks most amorphous five-necked entity (which includes Other Musics own Dan Hougland) have never been strangers to taking the longer, more undulating gravel road, as evidenced by the stretched out subterranean sermons on last years Ka album. On Self Destruction , Excepter crawl out of the cellar and into the warehouse. This is a house record. If Xenakis had made one. It is throbbing mental machine music that (much like the quintets live shows) appears to detour, but often climaxes with the religious fervor of a Wicker Man/Moodymann ritual. Definitely more Black Mahogani than Black Dice. Excepter just traveled all over New Weird America, and torched it in the process. Incendiary." - AK, Other Music.

Title: Vacation/"Forget Me"
Format: LP
Label: Fusetron
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Even though it would be wrong not to consider these protest songs against the back porch policies of certain undisclosed and secure locations, we shouldn⿿t let THEM come between us. EXCEPTER says, "Yeah, well play" ... freestyle, the crawl, the butterfly, the breast, the rest. "How long will you stay?" Just as expressions and intuitions reflect the oceans unleashed, there is no desert island, dig, just the big, bare teeth of EXCEPTER there, smiling beneath. "You forgot something?" To survive the coming weather, you are going to need to know a sailor, a captain, an engineer, a figurehead, as well as a pirate, so SHOW ... A continuous stream of music split into two sides.  Performed and mixed live to stereo. SS EXCEPTER:"Were only a world away." - Excepter. "For the second time in a row now, one of Brooklyns grandest experimental entourages have presented us with a sonic totem whose jaunty and bright packaging belie an almost certain palpable sense of unease. This new twelve-inch is entitled "Vacation", and here Excepter have perhaps crafted a treatise on nothing less than the uncomfortable aspects of having to leave oneshome. Or they may well have been channeling the soundtrack to a particularly bizarre road trip I once went on involving an Indian burial ground, a cross eyed woman Xeroxing chain letters at a supermarket, and an extremely sadistic alligator farm outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas where I witnessed a stuffed Fiji Merman. Unease indeed. But of course, like on any worthy and good vacation, once youve become used to new unsettling sensations like foot blisters and sunburn you realize how sublime the landscape is. And sublimity is what Excepter trades in spades. Side-one positions the moment where you have trouble getting your bearings, trouble putting your surroundings into perspective. The rhythms are all displaced, their center of gravity slackened by synths squiggling all willy-nilly looking for something to latch onto. Side-two, "Forget Me," is where everything comes into focus -- like a photograph that you can spend some time with to chart your inner progress. This track could be Excepters pop moment, their breezy road trip down the Autobahn (and here the Kraut reference is especially apt). Pistons fired, these beats are allowed to lope carefree into the coming summers new season of discontent. Ex-ceptional." - Michael Klausman; Other Music.

Title: Throne
Format: CD
Label: Load
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Like a group groped Helen Keller all too drugged out to protest, the New York City based EXCEPTER weaves a dangerous course through the orange cones of cortex caressing sound. Drawing from boom-box emitters as disparate as CHROME, COMUS, and that weird-ass Indian techno music you heard eating that Somoza. Frequently lumped in with bands in their zip code like GANG GANG DANCE, SIGHTINGS, and ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and the NO NECK BLUES BAND, they are actually much more of a confrontational question mark. Lots of floor crawling stage exclamations make the band more slippery than a greased watermelon. With a lineup jamming out unclear instrumention but perhaps including detritus of Casios, battery needin samplers, six string part catalogs and occasional percussion, they manage to craft a deeply and creepily eerie sound that includes sounds from all over the radio dial. One could easily relax to this record and have ones heart forget to stop beating. Two of the songs on the record, "Jrone (Two)" and "Jrone (Three)" are on the "KA" record, but in extremely mutilated formats due to reworkings to the point that they lie naked and throbbing like a gum wrapper in Gitmo Base." - Load.

Bonus video footage includes the full show of Excepter at The Echo in Los Angeles and other surprises. Here, at the literal End of the West ... Watch as Excepter descends the great stair down to Sand Dollar beach, armed only with a flute and a small bag of percussion. Listen as Excepter walks on Morro Bay to the dread beat of the setting Sun. See Excepter dressed head-to-toe in black in the noon-day heat on a nudist beach (Parental Guidance Suggested). Feel the hostile surf continuously lash the last soundclash." - Excepter.

Title: Burgers/The Punjab
Format: 12"
Label: Paw Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Excepter is a freewheeling American vocal and electronics troupe dedicated to the illumination of unconscious rock through hypnotism and trickery, electricity city, aqua vitae. Excepter deliver two long dance tracks in a synthetic protest style, mapping the flipside of the sublimated global war machine inherent in the industrial food exploitation in the twin hubs of New York music subculture. Side A is a group groove on the cannibalistic struggle between capital and labor (ambition and drudgery) reproduced nightly on the Williamsburg gluttony scene. Side B is a techno imagining of the imperial threat of the comic strip girl on the Lower East Side as told from the point of view of the microwave ovens of a Sikh taxi stand. (45 RPM for maximum phase forgiveness.) War and peace in less time than it takes to get there." -Paw Tracks.

Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"EXCEPTER ⿿ PRESIDENCE ⿦ ⿿LONG DISTANCE MUSIC⿝ PRESIDENCE is the eighth album in as many years by EXCEPTER. A double compact disc, PRESIDENCE explores the long-format side of EXCEPTER, focusing on continuous live performance and extended compositions. Over the course of more than two hours, PRESIDENCE spans the full spectrum of the EXCEPTER sound, from street-level electro to cosmic synth infinity and beyond. This is the sound of the band leaving Earth behind. EXCEPTER ⿿ PRESIDENCE ⿦ RECORDING NOTES: TELEPORTATION A six-song suite improvised in one continuous, live recording performed at Nathan Corbin and Clare Amorys home studio on October 18th, 2008. Behind the final door ⿦ is another door. LENG A multi-track instrumental recorded by Mitch Rackin at the Sea Side Lounge studios over the winter of 2007 during the DEBT DEPT sessions. Titled in tribute to a Lovecraft tale location. OG A live-to-stereo recording from the bands six-hour ⿿Return to Black Hole⿝ dog days performance at the Williamsburg experimental cinema-restaurant Monkey Town on July 17th, 2007. PRESIDENCE A solo synthesizer performance by John Fell Ryan recorded Presidents Day, 2003. (Pre-War) THE ANTI-NOAH Another recording from July 17th, 2007. Not in reference to our pal Panda, but rather to question the NOAA public closing of The Sound Garden since 9/11. Why would terrorists target meteorologists or an obscure sound sculpture park? Excepter wonder. THE OPEN WELL A selection from the bands 17-hour ⿿protest⿝ performance at Monkey Town on Election Day, 2008.

Listeners should plug into a stereo. PRESIDENCE: If you fall asleep while listening to this record, please to dream of only EXCEPTER. EXCEPTER is a six-member improvisational electronic and vocal group based in NYC. Founded in 2002 with the stated intent to use the tools of dance music towards esoteric ends, Excepter was behind many of the classic recordings associated with the 00s Brooklyn Noise phenomenon. Excepters 2008 Paw Tracks LP ⿿Debt Dept⿝ seemed to predict the global economic collapse that followed its release. The Excepter live experience remains an unpredictable, mystifying affair ⿿ always singular, never the same show twice." - Excepter.

Title: Frkwys Vol. 2
Format: 12"
Label: Rvng International
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"RVNG is proud to announce a new 12" series entitled FRKWYS. A play on the name of the legendary Folkways record label founded by Moses Asch in the late 40s to document sound and movement in music from around the world, our FRKWYS (think Freakways) 12" series pairs contemporary artists and their progenitors by way of remix, reinterpretation, and original collaboration. Like the Folkways releases, each installment in RVNGs FRKWYS series lives under a thematic banner (albeit sometimes loose) and explores a different facet of electronic music. The first release in the series features collaborations from NYC avant-pranksters Excepter with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey, and JG Thirwell of Foetus and his many alter egos. The result of this premiere series edition is a new and entirely relevant industrial revolution. Chris & Cosey draw from their early output (Heartbeat, Trance) and turn Excepters Shots Ring into a whip smart primitive techno mix while JG Thirwell orchestrates Stretch as a wildly percussive, brassy acid track. We are housing these limited edition 12"s (900 copies / pressing) in a classic package using heavy stock jackets applied in leatherette and tip on adhesives, creating a truly substantial and archival feel. You have to see / hear this record to believe it." -RVNG International

Title: Zion
Format: Cass
Label: Skrotup
Country: Denmark
Price: $7.00
"A 60 minute live set recorded in New York City in February 2009, Zion is like New Age music in reverse. From the esoteric voices and the synth vamping, to the machine-like rhythms and pleasant electronic chirping, the result is an increasing tension as new luscious layers are added to the improvised symphony. Comparable to a smooth-voiced shrink with a sadistic streak, the hour-long set makes you relax and open up, while at the same time messing with your head space on a subliminal level, leaving you in a marvellous state of unease. Edition of 100 incl. proof of purchase and fold out, full-color j-card." - Skrotup.
