Exitmusic is opening for Phantograms this Thursday 10.20 at Mr Smalls. Exitmusic is the project of Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church who just released a new EP called From Silence on Secretly Canadian Records. You might also recognize Aleksa from her role in HBO's Boardwalk Empire (which is my favorite show right now). The duo is currently playing CMJ right now before making a short east coast trek.

From their press:
So what is Exitmusic? Bands like Sigur Ros, Radiohead, and Godspeed Your Black Emporer come to mind: dark, emotive, electronic music washed with icy guitars and Aleksa's husky yet angelic vocals. It's music meant to remind you of your vulnerabilities and revel in them. It reminds you of the human condition in all its strengths and weaknesses. Whether you're listening amidst a sunny day or the darkest night it'll make either feel like exactly where you need to be.
Aleksa and Devon met aboard a train in Canada years ago, two wandering souls that cosmically bumped into each other and never parted. Shortly after that train ride Devon moved to Aleksa's hometown New York, and ten days later they moved in together. Check out the EP download below and make sure to check out the mesmerizing beauty of their new video for "The Hours."
The show begins at 8p with tickets only costing $13. You can purchase here.
