Album Notes
Formed in Y2K, Etro Anime is one of the most innovative and fresh acts to emerge from the New York Dance Scene in years. The band's sound takes in elements of Drum & Bass, Trip-Hop, Phat Beats, and Soulful Grooves finished off with the blissed-out vocals of Havana born singer Lissette Alea.

Classically trained, Lissette's vocal style draws heavily upon myriad of musical influences. Her warm and sensual tones are the perfect antidote to programmer Dave Fisher's razor sharp beatz and breakz. Far from being a 2 tricky pony, the band comprises 3 other members who ensure that the band are greater then the sum of their parts. Ted Birkey is a driving force behind Etro's evolving sound. Ted, a.k.a. Wu, has written, produced, and played sessions for the likes of Guru, The Ultramagnetic MC's, Krashman, Psychodrama, The Junior Mafia and none other than The Master himself, Rakim. A member of the Bass Collective in his native NYC, Tom Welsch cuts a dash, weaving his funky basslines through the rest of the band's intricate rhythms and melodies. He cites his influences as anything groovy and well he might. Drummer Shambo Pfaff provides the rock steady backbone incorporating elements of Trip-Hop and live Drum and Bass in his beats.

Etro Anime is one of a dying breed of dance acts who do not exist solely within the confines of the recording studio. They succeed, where many acts fail, by effortlessly translating their finely crafted songs into jaw dropping, ass shaking and ultimately life affirming live monsters. The band's first ever European Show was one of the highlights of last year's Amsterdam Dance Event.

Hot on the heels of their remarkable live debut in Amsterdam, Etro secured a support slot on Kosheen's recent sell out tour of Austria and Germany. The band made a swift return to the mainland European stage for an appearance at the 2-Day Frequency Festival in Salzburg, Austria. Etro Anime shared the Alternative Tent on Friday, June 14 along with Kosheen, Sneaker Pimps, Das Pop and many others. Their upcoming European tour also includes a-seven-city dates in Germany supporting Llorca.

Recorded in NYC, their hotly anticipated self produced debut album "See The Sound" will be released on Entry 1 Records on September 2 and distributed through V2.

The band also has a track "Only When You're Gone" featured on the soundtrack to the forthcoming independent movie Wishcraft starring the inimitable Meat Loaf.

I like this here band!
This CD is great! Hot, cool, urbane, layered, great chill out music to be down with someone, or to get down with someone! :=)


brilliant CD. Why they don't have a deal in US???
See The Sound is one of the best records that I have heard this year. What a pity that songs such as PUREST ONE and PORTRAIT can not be heard on radio stations in US.


Aural sex at its best!
Loved the vocal effects; the tight percussion tracks; the SOUND! I'm usually into groups like Zero-7 but this was a great change. BUY IT!


I have absolutely no complaints about this record. Everything from the songs themselves to the production to the grooves to the musicianship to the vocals are all incredible. Most definitely a purchase you won't regret. It's great to see there are still great fresh new bands out there. Destined for big things!


a dreamy paradise
Vocals like liquid butter, haunting and involving melodies, and strong rhythm, always pressing forward. Etro Anime combines the best of several genres to lay down a dusky, sultry sound on See the Sound. I could listen to the album all day long, and have: it infuses my life with a cautious optimism.


my new favorite cd!!
It will seduce you. The best sound... and lyrics... since Portishead.

AMAZING sounds, soothing, instantly hooked!
Awesome sounds. Being a huge DnB fan i got into Etro Anime thru their song "Purest One." Now i am instantly hooked and would love to see this group make it to every end of the world to share their music. Amazing beats, Amazing vocals, Amazing lyrics, just what else could you ask for ? ok latez


THIS CD ROCKS! I told me friends about it, and they loved it to. My favorite song was number one. I totally reccomend it.


catchy schtuff
This is sexy music, I tell ya! It has a nice texturing thing going! Airy voice too. Sensual and tasty atmosphere all around. Makes me wish for a late spring day under a maple tree... That's it! It has been decided! I am moving to Canada! I think they have lots of maple trees there. I can lay underneath one and listen to this album. Over and over again...

Earl! Let's pack our stuff.


Finally in a CD
I'm a follower of the band from the beginning, and this 1st album is amazing, you won't regret it.
