The closing “All of This Bliss Doesn’t Come Without a Price,” though a little light in substance, makes up its lack of scope with angelic tones, likely those signaling a death ascension. There’s an argument to be made there. As theses go, the new material inadvertently seems to suggest El Ten Eleven have been making variations on the same record for years, which, some detractors may say, they have. Drummer Tim Fogarty is low in the mix and hardly registers, though he doesn’t need to, in the least. Five Years Later: The Best Films of 2014!! Gotta give another listen to “You Are a Piece of Me, You Are a Piece of Her.”. Trust us, when you hear the lullaby-esque, accenting guitar motif he lays over the main refrain about four minutes into “Piece,” you won’t be itching for something more percussion-driven anytime soon.

All you need to know about Tautology III can be heard in about six minutes on the heart-aching and at times pitch-perfect “You Are a Piece of Me, You Are a Piece of Her.” On it, guitarist/bassist Kristian Dunn layers on mounds of atmosphere, so much so that the harmonic-plucked main figure (which is quite beautiful) barely raises its head above the tidewaters. …, A more manageable, more cohesive version …, This is a meditation both on sadness and the way we conjure it through music.

Album opener “Entropy” could be used as footnotes in a research paper on math rockers concocting variations on a theme. But, when it comes to the raw surging energy and sweat and grit and folly of youth, the record is wanting. The disc is a good one, albeit the question remains whether better editing could have refined this life-cycle down to a double-LP or even a hefty single one. El Ten Eleven is an American, Los Angeles-based, post-rock duo, known for combining guitar/bass doubleneck or fretless bass, with heavy looping, or vamping, and the utility of an effects pedal, over acoustic or electric drumming.They have released seven full-length albums, 2 EPs and a remix album, earning generally positive reviews.

Kristian Dunn, the duo’s very adept guitar and bass player, said he wanted Tautology I to “represent what my teenage years were like, when I was full of testosterone and depression”, according to advance materials. “With Report” plods along with more of a thud and a wallop that you’re used to hearing from El Ten Eleven, although it doesn’t live up to the slash-and-burn retorts of its opening riff.
