LeylaDaze I can't even. ELROND has so many rob0ts in their live setup I was crying cables. Some bands go gear-wild, this band uses every last piece with militant precision. From their first note, technically minded audience members zombied to the front, in a trance which wandered elfin landscapes and didn't let us down for 45 minutes. ELROND is that underground band on a level of journeymanship which deserves WAY more notice. I'd put them in league with Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Favorite track: Hyper Cube.

about

"Elrond are PDX underground veterans Vern Avola (Avola, EMS, Ex-Prizehog) and Ian Gorman Weiland (one-half of Antecessor) and All Of Them But Us is this volatile, hypnotic electronic music project’s debut full-length, courtesy of David Fylstra’s ANIMA Recordings. The release marks an important chapter in ANIMA’s eclectic development– a leftfield electronic ripper amid more rock-oriented projects and bands.

Often improvising unique live sets and pushing their analog synthesizers to the brink with a style that mixes elements of noise with Berlin school and techno, Elrond are a fair league away from anything resembling nostalgic revivalism. The tracks that comprise All Of Them But Us show that fusion of extremes in their whole gamut to jaw-dropping effect, from the pounding, acidic pulse of “Hard Start” to the evolving soundscape of “Ghost Ship”, named to eulogize the tragic Oakland house fire that claimed dozens of lives. A powerhouse like the opener “Pariah’s Guild” (as good a name as any for what an experimental music community truly is) is one part grit, two parts suspended animation. It’s a refreshing reminder of what electronic music can be, and makes me proud to call Portland a second home. Let them be your guides through this murky and perilous night." - Matthew Sweeney, Foreign Accents.
