Ellis Island Sound comprises the duo of Pete Astor (The Loft, Weather Prophets, Wisdom of Harry, etc) and David Sheppard (State River Widening, Snow Palms, etc).
‘Regions’ is the duo’s third album since their inception, it has already been described as “Afro-Krautrock” and “Teutonic High Life”. It is possible to detect the influence of Jean Bosco Mwende or King Sunny Ade’s guitars, along with polyrhythmic ensemble force of Fela Kuti’s Africa 70 and T-Funk-period Talking Heads. Sometime Radiohead collaborator John Matthias’s applies vocals to five tracks, coming on like an opiated James Brown channelling Damo Suzuki.
For fans of Can, Fela Kuti, Talking Heads and Neu!
