ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Exit Terra - s/t

From Aural Innovations #22 (January 2003)

This is a swell and swelling debut from a trio of music veterans who have moved on from punk and into something a lot slower and more atmospheric -

The album begins with the beautiful "Return to Planet Slatus", an eleven-minute space excursion at first anchored by a slow foot-tapping electro-beat with Spacious Mind wailing guitars hovering over the top. Five minutes later the synthesizers are set on an intense machine-gun phaser attack while the guitar notes are sustained high above. This gradually melts into a smooth come-down jam with heavenly bass while distant-siren guitars and keys mimick each other. I detected no imperfections in this improvisation.

The other jaw-dropper here is the 20-minute "Next Phase"... well, the build-up is on the lengthy side, but the tension is thoroughly released. You know something is happening when a gang of scampering weedling guitar weasels attack an already-established slow brooding beat. The mind is then shattered by metal-Hendrix lead-guitar and a clash of titanic 'tronics swelling against and blending with each other. A slow pure rush. Our minds are shattered.

"Zero Hour (inspired at the end)" is another good bit, a slow full-band jam with guitars, bass, keys and thoughtful beats that are apparently programmed but just sound like a guy doing his own thing. There are guitars that trickle-plink into some dub horizon, flocks of ascendent keys...

a massively impressive curtain of sound...Quite a journey
Three guys make up the band, Robert Noble on guitar, Spatial K on bass and MC Ear on, er, everything else. The ep consists of one track, but believe me, it is, in the formal sense, an extended play cd! The track itself, The Next Phase, is improvised with no overdubs, and begins similar to a Robert Fripp solo album from around his soundscape period. Gradually the speakers fill ever so slowly with more echoing sounds and brick by brick, a psychedelic wall is built. MC Ear keeps things in check with a steady beat as Spatial K lays over a variety of slow but effective bass lines. Over this Robert Noble builds, via a variety of sfx, a massively impressive curtain of sound. Not quite the thing you'd hear on Radio One, but then again, decent stuff never is. Quite a journey - and again, thanks to Tim Jones from SP. Further info www.exploresound.com. (Dw)

If improv, fusion, spacerock and electrobeats moisten your glands, then you shou
Keeping the spacerock feel going, here's Exit Terra, unknown to me, but the originators of one of those jaw dropping CDs that make this whole music thang worthwhile. The opening track, "Return to Planet Slatus", won't be leaving the decks of death for quite some time, Over eleven minutes, this goes from slow, beautiful and dreamy, sidesteps into Kraftwerkian electrobeat before crushing your senses with an intense synth attack. Awesome.
If the other tracks pale slightly it's purely due to the sheer wonder of the ceedee opener. "Next Phase" comes close, but slightly overstays its welcome, at twenty minutes. If improv, fusion, spacerock and electrobeats moisten your glands, then you should really be checking out Robert Noble, Spatial K and MC Ear. Tremendous.
