Post Rock at its finest

BrooklynBeats

A Pandora find. Being a fan of Tortoise I am always looking for other great post-rock bands and this definitely filled the void. Minimal but well done and reminiscent of Roots of Orchis meets Trans Am meets Five Style.

Next best thing to live

Saw these guys live in Chicago after hearing these tracks. Seeing them live was so much better but makes you appreciate even more how these tunes are put together.

I like it

ritta69

I found El Ten Eleven through Pandora. My favorite band is Mogwai and these guys came up on Pandora. YoDude's review is appropriate, but I can't help but think of it occasionally when I listen to this album, which is annoying as I am not a huge fan of chick-flicks. Nonetheless, this is good relaxing instrumental alt-rock type of album and it is similar (but different) to Mogwai

shamefully good

YoDude

Very enjoyable, but much of the album sounds like the moment in romantic movies when the guy, who has inevitably screwed up, reflects on what is really important in his life (the girl) and how to get her back. I guess I like those movies more than I'd like to admit - at least the ones with good music.

AMAZING

DetroitRokker

Incredible! Found these guys on a local college station a couple years ago in Detroit. FINALLY they're dropping a new album on us. Can't wait 'til emusic picks it up!

BIG

jingo-bratwurstenhausen

They're powerful. And even more powerful if you get to see the duo live! All guitars are looped live on a double neck bass/guitar. It's like watching a magic show. And very friendly blokes.

Really, really good

Deeter

This is quite easily the best "post rock" album I've ever heard. For real. Definitely worth the download.

good as cheese n toast

djtouch

lovely little instrumental record that offers a great deal to people whom appreciate dainogah,unwed sailor or even tortoise. Theres a lot goin on for a duet whom create a nice warm sound that both surprises and soothes. Never heard of em before, its a shame really, givem a go.

They Say All Music Guide

An instrumental duo consisting of a bassist and a drummer, El Ten Eleven are groove-oriented post-rockers in the Chicago style; their self-titled debut album sounds like Tortoise stripped down to essentials, or a much less tortured Godspeed You Black Emperor! minus the drones. Bassist Kristian Dunn manages an impressive amount of tonal variety in his playing, and almost never devolves into fusion-style overplaying to try to fill in the relatively minimal sound. (There are occasional hints of guitar and synth on the album, as on the hyperactive-but-melodic “Lorge,” so it’s not all rhythm, all the time.) There’s an appealing breeziness to this album, a sense of playfulness and ease in Tim Fogerty’s drums and loops that keeps things skipping along lightly. Fans of the melodic instrumental post-rock of Japancakes or Trans Am will find a lot to their liking here. – Stewart Mason
