Exter vs. Kimock isn't a rugby match. It's the pairing of cellist Trevor Exter and drummer John Kimock. Together they explore the space where classical, rock and jazz meet.

John Kimock is the son of jam-band guitarist Steve Kimock, while Trevor Exter -- who approaches the cello as if it were a bass, a guitar and a synthesizer, all at once -- has absorbed latin sounds during sojourns to Brazil and Argentina. The duo's sound is a highly individualized, highly conceptual but always affective fusion of melody and rhythm. Without guitars or other instruments, the instrumental passages, notably on set pieces like "Intro/Hits," suggest the soundtrack to postmodern film noir, tense and atmospheric, while Exter's songwriting and singing express an easygoing, cool lyricism.
