STRAIN by Elson Complex
is a 'minimalism' piece
that could easily have been written
by Daryl Shawn himself.
This one really works
with its repetitive,
enchanting rhtyhm.

Everyone does Sunday differently.
Some of us want to be in silence.
Others go to church or party.
If you like to chill out,
VESTIGES by Elson Complex
may help you get there or stay there.

BLEND has a sad wandering quality.
As if haunted by its own existence.

Elson Complex's song I AM A ROBOT
recorded live at THE ZOO
feels like a burst of potent emotion.

VESTIGES by Elson Complex:
Totally mesmerizing!

You don't want to know
what I know about Elson.
And I destroyed all evidence.
Well, nearly all of it.

ln these fast paced, exhausting times,
sometimes we need music
that can allow us to change our pace.
VESTIGES is a great piece to do so,
even though it feels
like an evocative desperation
in simpler times.

BLEND by Elson Complex
is nylon string wonder
with just a touch of dissonance
that keeps you riveted
all the way through!

It’s Spanish guitar
but VESTIGES has a structure
I’d more associate
with electronic music.
The repeated phrases act almost
like beats or percussion.
But with enough finger-style melody
to give it an extra layer
that lifts it up and up.
Wonderful!
