Boomkat Product Review:
Exhaust is a bass, drum & tape trio that crashed through various small Montreal venues in a series of semi-controlled explosions during the mid-90s, with an early vinyl release on constellation appearing in 1998. 'Enregistreur' is an abstract slab of minimalist collage. Bassist Gordon adds bass clarinet on several tracks, while Mike (tapes) & Aidan (drums) deploy loops, signal processing, machine noise & live beats around slow, stripped down, see-saw bass guitar. The result is a chill, vaguely paranoid late night roam through the proverbial deserted city, picking up the occasional sinister, garbled transmission along the way.
