If you’re looking for something to do on a Monday night, I highly recommend that you check out LA-based retro future rockers Echoes de Luxe tonight at El Cid.
Echoes de Luxe finished their debut EP in late 2008. Mixed by Alex Newport (Mars Volta, Death Cab for Cutie) and mastered by Pete Lyman (Mars Volta, Jubilee), it’s no wonder Dave Navarro couldn’t stop playing their stuff on his L.A.-based radio show, “Dark Matter” on Indie 103.1.
There’s something so gritty about their sound, like warm keg beer, but still so tight and together, like a smart leisure suit topped off with a jaunty ascot. Are you still with me? My favorite track off their debut EP is One Minute More. Check it out here.
Echoes de Luxe is:
Richard Swan – vocals/guitar
Justin K. Smith – guitar/keys
Brahm Bourque – bass
Matt Lesser – drums
El Cid, 4212 W Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake. 10PM.
