Today on Ecléctico you're listening to MV & EE, a free folk and noise boogie duo from Vermont. Improvisation and experimentation are the foundations for guitarist Matt Valentine and multi-instrumentalist Erika Elder's music, steadfastly independent and prolific from the start.

You'll go deeper with an excerpt from and a link to an article by John Adamian from 2017 on Take Magazine.


"Dancin' In the Street" by MV & EE
2020 | Free folk and cerebral boogie music duo from Vermont


Go deeper.
MV & EE possess a particular kind of twenty-first-century musical eclecticism, drawing on the Old, Weird America of Harry Smith’s epic Anthology of American Folk Music, steeped in old-time music, country blues, and field recordings (the duo was asked to contribute a song to the highly regarded 2015 tribute record to English singer and folklorist Shirley Collins), and yet their work is also in conversation with some core ideas of contemporary classical music, minimalism, and free jazz.
