Exitmusic made their inaugural stop at Austin’s SXSW last week. Playing EIGHT shows, they were sure to grab attention of festival-goers while they were there. Bob Boilen, a name we all recognize from NPR’S All Song’s Considered, stopped by the DOC/JAG/SC showcase at Mohawk on Thursday night and EM, although playing in the dark, made their mark. In his SXSW Musical and Not So Musical Highlights, Boilen called Exitmusic a “perfect roar of sound steeped in Radiohead and Sigur Ros but full of talent in voice and texture. A real aural feast.” Watch Boilen’s clip of EM performing “The Sea” above!
New York’s The Alternate Side got in on the SXSW action, asking EM to document their trip down South. Read it all from Aleksa’s viewpoint HERE. Photos too!
Aleksa and Devon also sat down with MTV2‘s Matt Pinfield in his 120 Mintues segment for a wee little chat about this and that. It’s video number 14 in the segment! Check it out HERE.
FINALLY, see Exitmusic live in concert!! Sharing dates with A Place to Bury Strangers, The Joy Formidable and School of Seven Bells, it’s likely they’ll be in a city near you! Check all the dates HERE!
