[INSTRUMENTAL POST-PROG] Refusing to be pegged as math rock, L.A. “power duo” El Ten Eleven applies a maximalist approach to a minimal setup of drums and a dude with a floor full of loop pedals. Hooks and textural flourishes alike are piled atop each other to create dense soundscapes that have more in common with ’90s groups like Pele and Tortoise than noodly modern contemporaries. It’s also adverse to the tag “post-rock,” naturally, so we’ll just say El Ten Eleven is the musical equivalent of stylish wallpaper: fashionable and interesting, yet easy to relegate to your periphery.
