Ellypseas has only been around since spring 2009, but in a city known for out-there bands, this avant-everything quintet is already pushing the envelope. Ellypseas particular brand of strange, as heard on June debut Indescribable Colours, is worth a double-take. Jazz-rock leanings brush shoulders with spaced-out sonics, occasional shards of brittle psychedelia, lead singer/flautist Lizzos soulful vocals, rhythmic playfulness and grandiose tendencies that rival any prog standard-bearer. Did we mention the flute?
