Instrumental Awesomeness: El Ten Eleven

Occasionally, when you listen to music as much as I do, the same tired lyrics about love lost and gained, long lonely highways, and late night drunken escapades all start to sound like mush—a shapeless mound of monotony. That's when I turn to El Ten Eleven. The Los Angeles duo, comprised of drummer Tim Fogarty and bassist and guitarist Kristian Dunn, play lights out instrumental pop music filled with hooks, surges and plateaus that will leave your ears ringing with wonder. The video above is a good example of how the magic happens, with Dunn playing his signature double neck guitar/bass.
