GIMME TINNITUS is a Brooklyn-based music/MP3 blog run by a dedicated music enthusiast by the name of Bob Reich. We love his constant curation of killer shows, sick playlists, and undying advocacy for spending your hard-earned cash to support the bands he loves. He tends to go for the loud, abrasive, unconventional, and downright obscure-as-hell music that we can’t get enough of on Serious Business On BTR. For the fourth and final installment of the four-part GIMME TINNITUS X SB On BTR Takeover, we’re featuring Exocomet.
Exocomet is a deliberately mysterious band. This Brooklyn-based two-man-machine of a post-punk experimental band has earned the right to keep the details murky, playing fast and precise, with layers of ambient sonic chaos for their krauty no wave dreamscapes to float around on. There’s a sort of familiar, ominous vibe to their music, but, more importantly, there’s persistent forward propulsion that’s highly addicting.
Featured song: “Dive”

Exocomet’s debut record will be available on Germfree Records on April 1, 2014.
