El Cento is a three-piece band hailing from Austin, TX. Their self-titled debut album is a wide-ranging journey from quirky “NYC 1977″ angularity to modern indie rock. Purveyors of “Massively Spartan Rock ‘n’ Roll,” the band values the spaces between the notes as much as the notes themselves. With each song and performance the goal is to paint a broad and dramatic sonic picture using grace, control, wit and experience instead of bombast or histrionics. Wry lyrics and unparalleled musicianship round out the bill. These guys can play, but it’s what they choose not to play that makes them unique.
