"...late-70s/early-80s intersection of post-punk, no-wave, cold-funk and Euro-electronica, ...lyrically inspired by the events of today, Atlanta's woefully underrated Elevado mines a host of fantastic sources to come up with its intriguing, intense sound." - Jeff Clark, Stomp and Stammer Magazine

Meet Elevado
an Atlanta band whose label, venue, record store, veggie-diesel bus and live shows are currently being covered by The Big Takeover, Stomp and Stammer Magazine, Creative Loafing, the Atlanta-Journal & Constitution, and Performer Magazine.

Elevado’s story began in Athens, Ga.
when Justin Sias and wife Kitty Snyder (Pitch-A-Tent Records) collaborated –through online file sharing – with former Athenians Cain Wong and Mark Duca – both living in Los Angles – and Don Dudenhoeffer to produce Elevado’s first album, the transatlantic “Occidental Oriental” (2003).

Their headquarters, The ISP Space (located in the East Atlanta Village next door to The Earl –Atlanta’s most popular indie venue), is a cavernous space that houses video installations, paintings and mix media exhibits, cds, vinyl and other merchandise from local and national bands that have played there.

Scheduled to release seven CDs this year, the label they run, ISP: www.isp-music.com, started in Athens during the late nineties and quickly regained speed in Atlanta last year by releasing three 7-inch singles (Elevado, Aviator, Parade), a limited edition cd: “LIVE at ISP” featuring Pistolero, (2006) and reissues of Elevado's first two albums, all available through Stickfigure Distribution.

Unsuspecting recipients of a booking buzz, Elevado and ISP have already welcomed bands including San Diego’s the North Atlantic and Sexy Time Explosion (Gold Stand Laboratories), Amsterdam’s zZz (Howler Records), Finland’s Fun and Antelope (Dischord Records).

Elevado’s fourth self-produced album, "This World is on Fire" (April 2007) was conceived while on tour and features an electro-experimental combination of programmed beats, live tracks, four-track recordings and circuit bent fun sounds adding atmosphere to their first concept album.

"I was influenced by the Second Gulf War and reading Brave New World," said Justin Sias, "ideas of paradise engineering and imperialism in a future alien-world seem to parallel present-day events …"This World is on Fire," is a mediation on our worst nightmares of democratic impotence and media coercions, still, we maintain the ability to fall in love with ourselves and each other in a uniquely human way."
