Steeped in progressive-Balkan jazz backdrops, Electro Mehteran crafts retro-futuristic Rubik’s cube-style songs. Listeners may feel as though they’re reading a Grant Morrison storyline while a Danny Elfman record crackles in the background.
Although their tunes are analytical curiosities, they’re no arm-chair affair: Electro Mehteran invokes a brassy fire that sets dance-floors aflame with a passion for math and speaking in tongues. Somewhere between daft and deft, this Chicagoan sextet assaults genre boundaries and pushes listeners to ponder.
