Republic of Jazz: Exit North - Book of Romance and Dust (October 1, )He has a tone that is both breathy and full, dramatic and intimate, and is so closely recorded that every breath is starkly present. He is backed by atmospheric music that makes the average David Sylvian solo album seem like a disco hits compilation. The arrangements feature minimalistic piano backing and spacious keyboards to provide a gauzy, melancholy mood, with the sounds of violins and cellos occasionally filling in. The esthetic is similar to the simple piano works of Erik Satie, with a kind of meditative calmness infused through the sound. In the growing field of atmospheric songcraft, Book of Romance and Dust is a beautiful entry, moody and expansive if a little frustrating in its stark intimacy — with that one exception.

Exit North Session 2018
In I asked Thomas how he felt about working on a more long term collaborative project with the hope of putting out an album together. Later Thomas had the idea to ask Charles to join us.

Exit North - Lessons In Doubt
Feiner and Jansen continued working together, adding Jansson and Storm to what became Exit North in I also hear touches of another jazz-influenced band that I love, Cousteau. Comparisons aside, this is a stunning debut. A heady mixture of dark nordic electronica, interspersed with acoustic instruments, Book of Romance and Dust makes great use of space and restraint. Bested Bones is a beautifully paced opener, underpinned with sumptuous strings, and a slowly building rhythm. Short Of One Dimension is an early highlight. An Americana inspired guitar line is slowly buried between piano and trumpet lines, and a heart-beat bass drum provides the pace.
Thank you. George Wilhite. Purchasable with gift card. Review Summary: There is something exciting and new about the music on this record, something that goes far beyond the 'Opiates'.

After adding some brass type bursts to the chorus, it set the path to becoming much more aggressive and bombastic? Just perfect. Bested Bones is a beautifully paced opener, underpinned with sumptuous strings.
