The Black Heart Procession: Exit Out
The Black Heart Procession song, "Exit Out", takes it's time, like a hooker getting paid by the hour. Steadily building a mid-range tension it appears to go nowhere and it doesn't - just circling, a raptor in the sky, summoning forth a warm autumn day, Indian summer. A day filled with hookers, hawks, and hazy guitars, plus an endlessly sustained organ note - one that buzzes against the 'stumble-down-the-last-few-steps' drum beat. Imagine Nick Cave, Matt Berninger of The National, or Tindersticks', Stuart Staples, those voices interpreted by a voiceless band of musicians... an instrumental black heart (procession).
