Keith Kennif AKA Helios is an musician from Pennsylvania.From a young age he stared the play the drums,guitar and bass. throughout his musical career he played in a variety of bands,from rock to classical and jazz.Years later he studied Percussion at Boston's Berklee College of music

Soon after, all this molded into his moniker 'Helios'. His sound is a blend of soft,spacious guitar accompanied by slow pads and slow yet intricate percussion,along with his self taught electro-acoustic sytle of producing this really is the perfect blend of sounds.

This album "Eingya" tales influence from his interest in cinema and his extensive European travels.A blend of natural sounding instruments mixed with electro-acoustic sounds alongside some great field recording.I encourage you to get this album and to buy all his others, in my opinion they just get more and more fun to listen too.

Giraffes? Giraffes!

Giraffes? Giraffes!. They are 2 guys just going pretty mental, one on guitar and one on drums. The drummer performs fast,upbeat and sometimes confusing rhythmic accompaniment for the guitarist which taps,plucks,smacks and loops his guitar like there's no tomorrow. The drummer not only drums but he plays other instruments like the glockenspiel and pots and pans. Its a mix between Heavy,Soft,Loud,Quiet,Smooth,Rough,Tomayto,Potarto.

I would love to see this band live,but unfortunately they havent released an album for 2 years, so I don't expect a tour anytime soon. but keep my fingers crossed. I also have a feeling they;ve both gone their own way.

Fans of Tera Melos, Hella, Piglet,Volta Do get the drift...

I'm also feeling quite genereous today, and the fact I havent posted anything for a while. Ive uploaded two of their albums!

Giraffes? Giraffes! - More Skin With Milk-Mouth
Giraffes? Giraffes! - SUPERBASS!!!!
