Errortype:11 The Crank EP

After the premature dissolution of his previous band, the Walter (Quicksand) Schreifels co-founded World's Fastest Car, ET:11 front man Arthur Shepherd has refocused his energies on his current project. Destined to join the ranks of such worthy new-school emo outfits as Jimmy Eat World, Hot Water Music, Chamberlain and Juno, ET:11 lay down a thick-with-guitars, heavy-on-the-beats brand of thoughtful, introspective music that ranges from full-on hammering rockers like "Right Again" to acoustic-based R.E.M.-tinged ditties like "Collecting Dust." Although only an EP, the five-tracks on this release are enough to show the band in full flight. (Crank)
