Best of NYC #57: El Jezel

Best of NYC #57: El Jezel

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record sotre personnel and DJs). Many of the bands in this list will play The Deli's Best of NYC Fest in Williamsburg in May (6 shows in 3 different venues between the 13 and the 15).

Not all power trios are fast paced and noisy: many El Jezel's songs take their time to build, through atmospheric instrumental intros, sparse sonic brushes of effected guitars and whispered vocals. The result is some kind of Post Rock that's ready to explode into memorable melodic and/or noisy, shoegazy openings . The project sparked when George and Dan randomly met at house parties in Massachusetts years back and discovered that they actually only lived a town away from each other. Both eventually linked up with Jessica about ten years ago, which led to playing open mic sessions in downtown Manhattan and ultimately the three formed a band. Recently performing along the East Coast, El Jezel brews bigger plans for its new EP, due to be released in the next few months. - Gina Alioto
