boringmachines I followed Liz Hysen's music since the beginning. Through the years it continuosly morphed into new forms keeping its strong character, tracing a recognisable style. This new "Exit" is another manifestation of greatness, this time using a vast array of collaborators on vocals, who reinforce the central idea. Once again absolutely lovely. Favorite track: A Trench.

Bryon Hayes The many moods, perspectives and themes found on Exit are collected, synthesized and made whole by a group of talented musicians, and especially by Hysen herself. By eschewing her role as frontperson, she's revealed multiple facets of herself. Each collaborator brings out a unique element of her personality, yet it's the work of the entire ensemble that makes the proceedings complete. Exit is a singular vision made real through collaboration. Favorite track: She's In a Bad Mood.
