"Eleven Twenty-Nine is a blues-flecked, dueling guitar collaboration between American underground mainstays Tom Carter and Marc Orleans, who have been quietly mining the frets since well before there was such a thing as an Internet buzz cycle, and have only gotten more technically proficient while too many of us weren't looking. One half of the Texas psych-drone duo Charalambides (with Christina Carter), Carter is also the founder of Wholly Other records, and has collaborated with the likes of Marcia Bassett, Ben Chasny, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole, Jandek, Bardo Pond, Steve Gunn, and Matt Valentine. Orleans is a Sunburned Hand of the Man alumn who practices the steel guitar 90 hours a week, and Eleven Twenty-Nine takes its name from an old blues euphemism for a one-year prison term. With the light-footed, raga-Americana ambulations on "White Horse Blues," below, it's hardly a surprise that they have dedicated their debut LP to the late Jack Rose"- Emilie Friedlander, Altered Zones
