066/100 - "It's still a secret" by El Ten Eleven
I’ll readily admit to be rather taken with "It's still a secret" from El Ten Eleven, the instrumental rock duo from Los Angeles.
Their particular brand of upbeat, inventive instrumental post-rock is an utter delight for a warm Summer's day in central Scotland. Big fuzzy bass lines intersect with layers of sweeping syncopated guitar and driving yet intricate percussion to create something truly beautiful and catchy.
What I find remarkable is the sound this duo can achieve... they sound more alive than some full bands and their tightness as a unit is exemplary. It does make for compelling listening.
Why only 100 words?
