Critics have weighed in on the new release:

“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”

The FADER

“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”

Pitchfork

“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”

Stereogum

Tig Notaro’s ‘LIVE’ Now Available at Amazon & iTunes, New Interview Up Today at The Fader

Originally available at Louis C.K.’s website, Tig Notaro’s new album, LIVE, is now up for purchasing on both Amazon and iTunes. LIVE features Tig’s legendary Largo set, performed earlier this past summer. Over 75,000 copies have already been sold. Don’t wait any longer to get yours. You’ll be happy to know part of the proceeds from each album sale goes to breast cancer research!

Tig recently moved to New York City from her home of Los Angeles. How’s she handling the move? Well for starters, she’s in the market for a new bunk bed to share with housemate Kyle Dunnigan. Find out what else she’s up to at The Fader – new interview shared today! Read it HERE. Tig, Dunnigan and David Huntsberger head to Brooklyn’s The Bell House on November 17 to perform PROFESSOR BLASTOFF live! Get your tickets.

“Rare is the piece of art (and even rarer the comedy album) that covers this much emotional ground, getting to the point that its sometimes unclear whether the tears are due to laughing so hard or just from the seemingly hopeless pain of it all. Besides being joyously engaging, Notaro’s resounding strength makes this album something that lifts the soul of the listener as much as it entertains.” – TIME

WATCH // Exitmusic Premiere Video for “The Modern Age”

Premiering earlier today at The Fader, it’s the new Exitmusic video for “The Modern Age” off the recently released album, Passage. Directed by Daniel Ryan, the haunting video came out of a very real life experience both Aleksa and Devon share. Aleksa says, “Devon and I spent a few years volunteering at wild life rescue centers and, despite all the best efforts of very knowledgeable and compassionate staff members, sometimes an animal would just die from the shock of being captured. Their bodies would shut down because they knew they were not free. It has always stayed with us. That’s where we got the idea for the video.” Watch “The Modern Age” above.

Exitmusic will head out on tour this fall, playing shows across North America and eventually heading to Europe. You’ll find tour dates and ticket links HERE.

More Exitmusic fun –> In case you missed it before, NPR has shared Exitmusic’s live Alternate Side session in their Favorites section, calling Aleksa and Devon’s growing artistic identify “beautifully beguiling and darkly unsettling.” Watch HERE.

Lastly, Exitmusic share all the lyrics from their album Passage. If you’re curious, check them out HERE.
