ETHEL - Light (2006)
Contemporary Classical | Cantaloupe Music | 2006 | 54:45 | EAC (FLAC, cue, no log) | Booklet | 279 MB

ETHEL is four world-class musicians who have come together to create a hot new sound. Bluesy, hard swinging, playful, and fueled by fiery passion, ETHEL defies categorization. This musically omnivorous string band from New York City has been described as "the fiercest string quartet this side of hell," and "the most bad-ass quartet around." John Walters of the Guardian (UK) says, "I wish there were more rock bands who played like ETHEL." ETHEL's irreverence and panache inspires raves from every corner and one thing is certain: ETHEL will keep you riveted to the edge of your seat. In its seven seasons together, ETHEL has created its own rich playing style - a fusion of blues, rock, classical, jazz and experimental genres -- that has developed from each member's unique experience in the music world.
New York-based quartet ETHEL has been participating in the yearly Bang on a Can indie music festival in New York City along with such new music groups represented at AvaxHome as eighth blackbird and NOW Ensemble.

"Downtown darlings ETHEL must be having fun playing in a string quartet. How else to explain all those car noises, footsteps, bird chirps, parrot talk, cowboy yelps, rooster crows, cat meows and strains of Marvin Gaye, Texas swing, Brazilian folk and Appalachia on the group's new CD, Light? That's light as in light, fun-loving music." - New York Press
