Instrumental duo, El Ten Eleven are coming to Connecticut on Tuesday, September 14 and they're bringing along their brand of electronic rock. The duo will be performing at the Daniel Street Club in Milford.
El Ten Eleven are currently on tour promoting their soon-to-be-released fourth album "It's Still Like A Secret." Each of the band's first three albums are available on iTunes. The duo of Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty have created a sound unlike anything that is out there now. Their use of layering sounds from guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and more gives us an atmospheric feel to their songs. While their studio albums explore the use of space and sound, their live shows are a spectacle to behold. You begin to wonder how all this music comes from only two people.
El Ten Eleven's sound has changed over the course of their three albums. The jamband sounds of their debut self-titled album are evident in the songs "Sorry About Your Irony" and "Thinking Loudly." The band's second album "Every Direction Is North" expands the duo's sound a little more with the Syd Barrett prog-rock "Music For Staring At Ceilings" and modern rocker "Living On Credit Blues." The third release, "These Promises Are Being Videotaped" brings a heavy mix of keyboards into their sound. The album opener "Jumping Frenchmen of Maine" carries a club-dance beat, while the duo tries to expand on their cover of Radiohead's "Paranoid Android."
