title "Band of the Day " from Spin in 2005, who described their work as "experimental instrumental music that's both highly
skilled and deeply felt."

El Ten Eleven Background
Bassist and composer Kristian Dunn along with drummer
Tim Fogarty have created some outstanding instrumental music. Relying on just the two of them has been more of a blessing
than a challenge. Dunn has been noted as saying that with El Ten Eleven "just being the two of them is a lot easier to schedule
practice time, as well as not having to deal with the egos of say, a lead singer."
Over their decade-long tenure, they
will admit that they have improved due to their weighted tour schedule.
"We use a lot of ideas and techniques that we
couldn't do at first. Our abilities have changed and the music is sharper," said Dunn.
Their debut album was released
in 2004 on Fake Record Label and through Bar/None Records on September 20, 2005, titled El Ten Eleven. They released their
sophomore album on CD format on July 9, 2007. It was then made available for download that August. That same year, the music
video for the song, Hot Cakes, was released.
Xtal Records issued the band's second full-length album, Every Direction
Is North in Japan, in late 2007. Their third album, These Promises Are Being Videotaped, was released on July 15, 2008. With
their fourth studio album, It's Like a Secret, arriving on November 9, 2010. And their fifth album, Transitions, came in the
fall of 2012.
Dunn stated that people are always trying to put a label on their music. She said, "If by indie, people
mean independent, then that's us. But when I think of indie rock, I think about Modest Mouse. That's definitely not what we
do. We're king of hard to define. A journalist called us electro-rock, and I like that. We have electro elements, except we
do it with live instruments and no laptops. We like to see people dancing at our shows as well. But we also have mellower,
