Kris Ellestad – Live at the Engineered Air Theatre

One hell of a live recording, taken almost one year ago in May 2012. He is a transfixing force, a dark timbre with astrong pop sensibility. He is a master of dynamic: the bombastic tide and chirping backup vocals of “In the Meantime” is an eventual though marked counterpoint to the reserved accompaniment on “November Steppes.” But these are hallmarks of great live music: tension, relief, dynamic, variation. Take a listen and read our thoughts on his last album.
