Familiar is Excepter's first new all studio recordings album since 2010's U.S. double album release Presidence (Paw Tracks) which brought the band the international recognition of The Wire magazine's cover story, followed in 2011 by the shattering news of the sudden death from cancer of core band member Clare Amory which scattered the wandering band members across their home continent to New York, Los Angeles and New Mexico. In 2012 the band managed to reconvene for a lengthy and successful European tour and also install themselves at Blast First Petite's invitation in Studio Faust in alchemical Prague to record the basis of this all-new album. The album is an audio-enhanced continuation of Excepter's trademark creepy-crawled odd leg disco, layered with LaLa's cosmic sighs and John Fell Ryan's atonal, lysergical lyric-poem chants. It also includes Excepter's cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren," which was perhaps best made famous by This Mortal Coil's sweet 1983 moonlit version. Here, Excepter deliver instead, a pain-warped invocation to their lost limb.
