Editorial Reviews

Product Description

While there isn't a note of singing to be found on the album, the band's song titles reveal the breadth of emotions and playfulness found within. 'The Sycophants Are Coming! The Sycophants Are Coming!' bursts forth with a nervous tension while the humorlessly named 'Marriage Is The New Going Steady' illustrates that an inspired guitar lick can say just as much as words in a love song. Then there's the aptly titled 'Ian Mackaye Was Right,' a nod to the DIY pioneer of Minor Threat and Fugazi fame. 'I've had seven record deals, major and indie, it never seemed to work,' bassist Dunn reveals. 'As soon as we started doing things on our own is when we found success. That's what that song is about.' Like the last two, this LP will be out on their Fake Record Label imprint.

Review

A sort of Silverlake-style Sigur Ros, the L.A. duo makes experimental instrumental music that's both highly skilled and deeply felt...the duo's compositions take on an incredible musical and emotional complexity. --Spin Magazine

DFA 1979 and Ratatat are obvious antecedents, but these guys place a great emphasis on layering and manipulating loops on top of a consistently bodyrocking beat. --RCRDLBL.com

Kraftwerk in the Sky. --The Onion

Highly recommended; I like it the best of the various El Ten Eleven albums I've bought. The others all have gems, but this one is fairly consistent and listenable. If you like Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky, and maybe also Built To Spill and Screaming Trees, then you'll probably like this.

Not as good as other el ten eleven albums. Seems like they may have gotten lazy or some sort but still a pretty good album

This is a great album all the way through, not just a couple good songs here and there. "Ian MacKaye Was Right" is probably my favorite track.

My question is: Is the album name in reference to Built To Spill's "Keep It Like A Secret?"

This band is recommended if

You listen to popular music, but they all sound the same to you.
You like a little beats on the side but you're more of a rock'n roll kind of guy/gal.
You feel that you're mature enough to discover new music, but not sure where to begin.
