Track Of The Day: Ellis Island Sound - 'Herr Ya Ya'

One I heard on the latest edition of Graham Lovatt's superb and refreshingly diverse Eclectic Eel Radio Show, a programme which provided me with a perfect way to soundtrack a nice Sunday afternoon yesterday. You can listen to it via his Mixcloud page HERE. The immersive, somewhat Can-esque 'Herr Ya Ya' comes from Ellis Island Sound's most recent album 'Regions, and is brilliant enough to make me want to investigate more of this band's music. Ellis Island Sound are a genre blending London duo consisting of multi-instrumentalists Peter Astor (formerly of The Loft, The Weather Prophets) and David Sheppard (of State River Widening), and 'Regions' is their fourth full length album since EIS formed in 1996.
