Editorial Reviews

Product Description

El Ten Eleven is the name adopted by Los Angeles based musicians Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty. Armed with only bass, drums and an array of foot pedals, the duo creates lush instrumental sound-scapes reminiscent of the music of Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, Tortoise, The Album Leaf and Radiohead. Also heard on the soundtrack to the documentary film Helvetica. This limited 180 Gram LP pressing includes a download card containing the entire album.

Review

Odd, atmosphreric Tortoise style post rock from LA duo playing only bass and drums. Moody, nutritious! --Amoeba Music

For any music lover out there, you must own this album.

The bass lines are pleasantly prominent and rich, with incredibly sweet guitar looping and delectable drumming.

El Ten Eleven's debut album is fantastic. They have a very unique and fresh sound comprised almost entirely of bass and drums. Aside from having a unique set up, bass player Kristian Dunn takes further steps toward a unique sound by using a handful of looping and octaver pedals with fantastic results.

The songwriting is also fantastic. To me, it's a sound I have been looking for and couldn't find until now. It's an upbeat brand of overlapping, rythmic post rock. I definitely reccomend it!

I orginally heard about this band on woxy.com and I loved what I heard. I actually listened to this for the first time on the way to the airport and the entire album is great. It is really a chill beautiful album with a feel good vibe.

I highly recommend this album to anyone that is even a hint of a fan of post modern rock, or anyone who just wants something chill to listen to. From the first song to the last, I loved it. The sound of El Ten Eleven can be described as a cross between the meaningful and emotional riffs of Explosions in the Sky and the spunky synthetic sound of Ratatat. El Ten Eleven is just as excellent as both.

Yeah, so it's not an L-1011. Not that anyone would base historical airline research on Indie band cover art...

I agree with the *other* two prior reviewers. Only thing I have to add is that no matter how many times I listen to it, I can't get used to the end of "Bye Mom". Still, not enough of a negative to dock a star.

El Ten Eleven- what does that evoke for you? No, it's not the new hours for Taco Bell (aren't they 24 hour now?), but the name of an indie rock band duo cranking out perhaps some of the most chill music I've ever heard in a long time. If you like the instrumental workings of Explosions In The Sky or The Six Parts Seven, yet want some tunes that are a bit catchier and shorter, I can't imagine you NOT liking this album! And it's amazing how much creativity and talent that can come out of two dudes! The bass lines are pleasantly prominent and rich, with incredibly sweet guitar looping and delectable drumming. A cohesive record it is, with very happy songs and things that just spiral around your head. It's the length of an EP, only about 7 songs long (the 2 under 2 minutes long don't really count, in my opinion), yet there's no feeling of waste! This is a proud album by an incredible pair making a name for themselves, initially from the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar. So take out your tacos or whatever and just relax to 35 minutes of a fluent journey- that's all you'll get, and it's a pretty good deal! Little fun fact from our friends at Wikipedia- the album cover shows a Boeing 727, not a Lockheed L-1011. Sorry about your irony :P

What a fun bunch of kids this group is. Light hearted thumping and bouncing revolving around delicious harmonies. If this were a dessert it would be an ice cream sundae so sweet you would get sick to your stomach and smile as you spent the night parked on the toilet.

I'm simply astounded that this band consists of only a drummer and a guitarist with a sick stack of effects. Cyriak animated a recent video of theirs, and if Cyriak likes it I know it will be good.
