El Ten Eleven releases new EP, coming to The New Parish

El Ten Eleven has a new three-song EP out, called For emily, and are touring in support. Full dates below. The band, which prefers to be called a "Power Duo" instead of any of the more descriptive labels you might want to use (like instrumental rock, post-rock, or math rock), put out the For emily EP as a tribute to a friend of theirs who passed away last year (the "e" in emily is lower case on purpose because that's how she spelled it). While all the hallmarks of the band's sound are here, there is an attention to texture [...]

El Ten Eleven announces new EP (Updated: win tickets!)

Coming back from their most recent remix album, 'Transitions Remixed', released this past April, El Ten Eleven will be playing Slim's this Friday in anticipation for the release of their new EP, 'For emily', in February. El Ten Eleven truly encompass the progressive rock genre by taking instrumentals to a whole new level.

New Bay Area supergroup Pale Blue Dot opening for El Ten Eleven tonight, 1/11/13

The East Bay trio known as Pale Blue Dot does not necessarily self-identify as a "supergroup," but I went there anyway. Comprised of members of James & Evander, The Aimless Never Miss, and B. Hamilton, what else would you call it? "There may be a few Bay Area music nerds who know our other bands, but we'd hardly call it a supergroup," says Adam Myatt, also of James & Evander. "We're three somewhat-like-minded musicians/friends from Oakland, who met playing shows in various bands together, and like to think of this current project as Carl Sagan-inspired disco." You read that right, [...]

Video Interview: El Ten Eleven at Fun Fun Fun Fest, coming to Rickshaw Stop on 11/16/12

El Ten Eleven released their new album Transitions on Election Day, so should we expect to find subversive political messages embedded in the instrumental duo's new album? I wanted to find out, so I sat down with Kristian Dunn, the band's guitarist and bassist (both at once, via a two-necked guitar) and picked his brain after their set at last weekend's Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas. Watch the inteview, above. After the jump, listen to Transitions in its entirety (via the band's SoundCloud page) and check out details on their upcoming gig at Rickshaw Stop on November 16th [...]
