We've got some news for you: El Ten Eleven
are joining the JNR roster!
El Ten Eleven and Joyful Noise are cut from the same cloth. We both began our respective artistic endeavors in the same month of the same year, on opposite sides of the country. Over these last 15 years, we've worked independently of each other--like bastard twins separated at birth.
In case you're unfamiliar, El Ten Eleven is Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty. The band's eponymous 2004 LP may have received only modest attention initially, but the project would go on to defy all expectations, gradually attracting a significant cult audience and embraced by fans of all genres, from math rock to jazz to lo-fi hip-hop. The duo’s sound is sharply evocative in mood and feeling, yet simultaneously abstract and meditative. “I’m aiming for emotional impact when I come up with songs,” Dunn explained. “Sometimes it's technically interesting but it doesn't make me feel anything. But I don't want music that's interesting. I want music that's emotionally resonate.”
To celebrate this classic album, Joyful Noise announces a stand alone 15 Year Anniversary edition, with a limited first pressing of 1000 copies on amber-colored vinyl, accompanied by a bonus flexi and digital download card with two bonus audio tracks. This version will be available in stores on September 27, 2019.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL! JNR is also releasing El Ten Eleven's first FIVE albums with deluxe gatefold artwork, housed in a beautifully screen-printed wooden box that is limited to just 475 hand-numbered copies.
