Eleven Twenty-Nine (4 Albums, 4 Tracks)
- Tom Carter & Marc Orleans
Long time collaborators Tom Carter & Marc Orleans have formed a new project, Eleven Twenty-Nine, and signed to Brooklyn’s fastest growing indie, Northern-Spy Records for a two-record deal. Taking the name from blues parlance for a year long prison term, their first release is slated for February 22, 2011. Eleven Twenty-Nine lays down a devilish pact of pulsating, impressionistic sound keeping one foot solidly in the soul and depth of blues while the other is planted firmly in an enigmatic free improv rock. A regional tour of the northeast will follow the February release.
Tom Carter has been a blues-damaged guitarist of extraordinary magnitude and magnanimous extremes. In addition to his solo work and Eleven Twenty-Nine, Carter remains an active co-creator of the Texas homebrew psych pioneers Charalambides and curator of his own label, Wholly-Other.
Free-form psych veteran Marc Orleans has been the secret weapon behind some of the heaviest mumbo jumbo and dusted American cosmic-craziness to come out in the last decade and a half. Marc pioneered his twisted lines with Juneau, Enos Slaughter and the Sunburned Hand of the Man back at the end of the 20th century. Now, residing in Brooklyn, he plays steel guitar ninety hours a week. As well as with Eleven Twenty-Nine, Marc is an active member of the Acid Twangers, D. Charles Speer and the Helix and has appeared on N-Spy’s Colin Langenus’s latest record as well as Steve Gunn’s Borum Palace. He also just finished steel guitar work on Meg Baird’s upcoming Drag City release.
