Though now based in Brooklyn, the husband-wife duo Exitmusic relive their days volunteering at wildlife rescue centers in the elegiac new video for "The Modern Age." The band's Aleksa Palladino, also of Boardwalk Empire fame, explains: "Despite all the best efforts of very knowledgeable and compassionate staff members, sometimes an animal would just die from the shock of being captured. Their bodies would shut down because they knew they were not free. It has always stayed with us." Bleak! "The Modern Age" features on Exitmusic's Passage LP, out now via Secretly Canadian.
