SELECT LEVEL

Select Level
Heads may know Select Level mastermind Andy Sells best as the limber drummer for soulful fusion explorers Afrocop, Afrobeat orchestra Cascadia '10, or as the bassist for noisy prog-rockers Nosretep... or maybe even for his stint in electronic brainiacs FCS North, who existed from 1997 to 2007. This talented Seattle multi-instrumentalist has established that he can get weird and far out in various situations. Select Level finds Sells veering off on a tangent into the realm of sleek music geared for dancing and romancing. He's created works of sweet body/mind satisfaction that refuse to surrender to whatever awfulness reality throws at us. It's a luxurious-sounding luxury that you shouldn't take lightly. Words, Dave Segal. Photography, Jasmine Kara
