Freight Elevator Quartet

FEQ.JazzMusique (RSS, stream) treated me to Freight Elevator Quartet‘s So Fragile (from their Becoming Transparent album) not long ago and I liked it enough to take a note to look them up later.

The band released five albums between 1997 and 2001, but seems to have disappeared since. Their site is still alive, and most entertainingly, has 13 fan remixes of Svengali (also from Becoming Transparent) available for download. My favorite is the version by Absinthe & Shiftless. They’re not accepting new submissions, but the source material is still available for download.

I can’t find Freight Elevator Quartet at the iTunes Music Store{#XfFSogqWv7s&offerid=78941.10000022&type=3&subid=0}, but Becoming Transparent and File Under Futurism are available from
