Naked Elf biography
NAKED ELF are a subsidiary of SOLUTION SCIENCE SYSTEMS, a SciRock trio that plays accessible melodies with hooks and a powerful rhythm section. As NAKED ELF, however, the musicians concentrate on their mutual interest for improvisation and their sole album todate sounds nothing like SOLUTION SCIENCE SYSTEMS' math rock. Formed in 1999, the band consists of bassist/keyboard player Andy Tegethoff, guitarist Rob MaxGrogan and drummer Kelly Shane. In 2002, they have released a rather unusual album titled "Yi" (the Chinese word for 'one').

To describe their sound, I would say it is a kind of elecro/ambient/experimental sonic soup made up of various funky and groovy passages - something one would expect from the likes of DJAM KARET, MUSHROOM and perhaps OZRIC TENTACLES, albeit a rather watered down version of them. The album's eleven tracks are made up of various textures and psychedelic effects that range from screaming guitars, booming bass and driving rock arrangements to dark, gloomy passages reminiscent of ÄNGLAGÅRD; it also has its moments of delicate, whispered flute and languid strumming guitar. The mood being mostly laid-back, your mind may wander off into another dimension as you listen to this strange music, but you won't fail to notice the excellent musicianship and inspiration that went into the album. The liner notes, btw, confirm that "all sounds were spontaneously composed and performed".

Recommended mainly to fans of DJAM KARET, ESCAPADE and MUSHROOM (the American space-rock band, not the Irish folk-prog one), or to anyone with an open mind longing for a trippy sensory experience.
