Released: Jun 2012
Label: Hippos In Tanks
Exo opens with a short track called "Imax" that samples the introductory music for the wide-screen cinema format -- a fitting reference for a duo inspired by what it calls "high-def culture." Like 2010's Giza, the record plants its flag somewhere between Aphex Twin and the Suspiria soundtrack, with acid techno and corroded breakbeats cloaked in horror-core dread. True to their media obsessions, their sonics are positively supersized, with beats crunching and bass rumbling like the special effects of a Hollywood blockbuster.
