El Ten Eleven's album Banker's Hill. Available here on LP.
The music of El Ten Eleven has been described as meditation in motion, which seems apt. For the first time in their 16-year career, the band worked with an outside producer to distill this descriptor, teaming up with Sonny DiPerri and moving into the incredible confines of Panoramic House on the beautiful Northern California coast. The result is "Banker's Hill" an album that explores the paradox of beauty in anxiety, the importance and effect of family and the fleeting possibility of satisfaction.Made up of Kristian Dunn (bass, guitar) and Tim Fogarty (Drums), they utilize multiple looping pedals to create songs that sound as though they are being played by at least six people. Most first-timers to an El Ten Eleven show are stunned that the band is a duo. It's a refreshing site in this age of letting the computers do all the work.
LP - Standard LP.
