Cut Them Out 04:45


"I'm used to the solo guitar workouts from Brooklyn's Brendan Landis to be somewhat noise-oriented, but this one moves with heavy pop gauze layering that makes me think of Azusa Plain and the like – the avant wing of the shoegaze scene... Pretty wild." -The Wire

"This Brooklyn based collective excels in the craft of shyly eyed murmured dream pop... Jaw dropping stuff." -The Sunday Experience

"Hey Exit is Brooklyn-based Brendan Landis who produces some of the most inventive and atmospheric guitar instrumental/experimental music you will come across. 'Holding Collapse' is a finely-honed, almost meditative five minutes of layered instrumental guitar that is haunting yet somehow uplifting while the flip side (nice to be able to say that) 'Cut Them Out' is more ambitious. It is a distorted, slow drone composition, that is noise-orientated yet sublime and engaging with added vocal layer that gives you the sense of being alone in an abandoned Gothic Cathedral. This is a simple stunning offering by a prolific and inventive musician who would otherwise have been unheard of." -PennyBlack Music
