El Ten Eleven started as a duo in 2002 in Silverlake and have released six solely instrumental LPs to date using unique gear such as guitar/bass doublenecks, fretless bass, looping pedals and both electronic and acoustic drums. "It's almost like our looping pedals themselves are instruments we've had to master," bass player/composer Kristian Dunn explains. "I'll loop Tim's electronic drums with one of my pedals while looping my own bassline, then switch to my six string bass mid-song while he moves to playing acoustic drums, layering up the sonics and shaping the song as it all grows." By refusing to use anything pre-recorded live they've pushed themselves into new territory, now able to deftly recreate their complex compositions nightly.After 15 years together they've attained hard-won virtuosity with the devices and can now concentrate on songwriting itself rather than logistics. "Almost nothing we do is improvised live," says Dunn. "When we first started playing shows we'd sometimes run into trouble with the loops and have to stop mid-song and try again!"El Ten Eleven released their sixth full length album Fast Forward in 2015, and will release their first-ever vocal collaboration EP titled Unusable Love featuring Emile Mosseri on August 18. Preorders are available now. You can listen to the title track on all digital platforms.

Sego's Spencer Petersen and Thomas Carroll were both birthed in the burgeoning Provo, Utah music scene. However, finding inspiration in the dissonance that the towering structures and bustling city offers over the mountains and relative quiet of Provo, both relocated to an old pasta factory in downtown LA. Through various projects together, both founding members uncovered their distinct sound: lazy, grungy guitars with digital overlays and (refreshingly) honest lyrics. The band’s debut album surprises with angular guitars, complex arrangements and musings from an 80’s kid contemplating the void left from the misguided hope of our youth.
