Post-rock is a rather sterile term to be applied to the infectious music produced by bassist and composer Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty. Collectively known as El Ten Eleven, the duo has been creating their unique brand of propulsive instrumental rock for a dozen years. Kind of like a modern version of Devo without vocals, El Ten Eleven plays catchy, vaguely atmospheric rock that is definitely nerdy, but not as heavy-handed as many bands labeled post-rock. In fact, live these two talented musicians are fun and engaging, all without saying a word.
