El Ten Eleven w/Slow Magic & Nude Pop
Ever since Godspeed You! Black Emperor started playing woozy, out-of-focus rock music in the form of classically arranged movements, the post-rock genre (such that it is) has inadvertently become synonymous with dread-inspiring instrumental melodrama. But, if there’s one thing you need to know about El Ten Eleven, it’s that they are not Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Composed of two dudes from Los Angeles, El Ten Eleven has made a career out of a kind of guitar-forward experimentalism that lends itself to scoring documentaries about fonts (as they did for Helvetica in 2007). On last year’s Transitions, the band courts both loopy guitar dorks and pop music fans alike with experimental yet accessible math rock jams that are both emotional and satisfying to listen to. Consider this a sequel to September’s outstanding Tycho/The Album Leaf co-headlining show at Exit/In — a technical wonder with, y’know, feelings and junk.
